From CBC - October 23, 2017

Inuktitut videoshave a new home on theinternet: it's calledInuktitube, the YouTube for people who speak Inuktitut.

It's a four-year-old passion project, according to Ryan Oliver, the owner ofPinnguaq, a non-profit technology startup that's behind many Inuit-based media projects, including teaching computer code to kids.

"The idea is to put all the Inuktitut videos [on the internet] in one place, so that it can kind of be categorized and organized and searched in a way that can be done in Inuktitut," Oliver said.

Videos from media sites on the internet are manually posted to the siteby a Pinnguaq staff memberbut Oliver is hoping filmmakers and videographers of all levels will start uploading videos themselves. So far there are about 40 videos on the site.
