Lighting the pathway to connectivity
Sovereignty. A common goal amongst many Indigenous communities, organizations, people and businesses.
Digital sovereignty within Indigenous communities means having more control over the way technology is owned and operated. During a time where technology is shaping the way we learn, access health care, build businesses, connect with loved ones and so much more - digital sovereignty can make all the difference.

LEARN how technology can be used to facilitate skill development
DISCOVER how technology can create opportunities for entrepreneurs
UNDERSTAND how technology can improve community health and
ENHANCE community capacity using technology to create jobs
