Our Work

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.

Who We Are

We are an Indigenous-led, innovative non-profit serving all First Nations across BC. Our organization is guided by a board of directors who represent First Nations throughout the province. Our work is led by a team of Indigenous professionals and aspiring allies who specialize in education, engagement, thought and policy leadership, and research.

Why We Do It

Today, technology weaves through nearly every aspect of our lives from work to education; culture and health; environmental stewardship; rights implementation; and more. Since time immemorial, our peoples used and advanced technology, but colonialism, and the systemic barriers it creates, excluded us from equitably participating and leading in the evolution of current technology. That’s why we’re working to weave Indigenous knowledge, culture, and ways of being into technology.
