Thanks to my wanderings in the development of community media in Quebec in the early 1970s, I had the chance to receive an offer to develop a communications project (Ataausiit- 1974-76) whose source was part of a communications program by satellite (STT). The satellite had many military functions that we knew nothing about, but the program had a meager interface operations budget. We therefore tested small dishes to establish satellite links in areas far from Inuit villages, such as fishing camps, for example. But most of our efforts were devoted to establishing community radio stations which still remain in operation to this day. The idea of community radios came to us after realizing that the creation of indigenous television stations was not viable with the technical means of the time. For almost three years, I made trips to both coasts (Hudson and Ungava) where the Inuit population had villages in Quebec territory. The whole story is told in my little book which can be found on my site at the address:
