Technology weaves throughout every aspect of society. It is essential to First Nations' rights implementation and self-determination. As rights holders, our people must play an active role in shaping the future of technology and our relationship with it. To create space for Indigenous leadership, we work with tech-based companies to identify and address systemic barriers. Our training programs provide the digital skills and tools needed to advance First Nations’ visions for our youth and future generations.
