Digitization of Indigenous Audiovisual Material

Library and Archives Canada (LAC) is supporting Indigenous communities as they seek to preserve and make accessible existing audio and video heritage for future generations. Through its Listen, Hear Our Voices (LHOV) Initiative, LAC is providing up to $60,000 per project to eligible First Nations, Inuit and Métis Nation organizations to support their efforts to identify, digitize and preserve Indigenous language recordings, and build digitization and preservation capacity in their communities. Indigenous organizations are encouraged to submit applications until noon on December 11, 2020 (PST). Find guidelines, eligibility information, and application form here.
