  • MyKnet | FirstMile
    First Nation online youth and users to begin their online journey within a safe and learning environment This is considered a crucial aspect of developmental initiatives and an important aspect of all educational projects over the world in the context of ongoing digitalization The website was originally coded by KO Knet s network manager and multimedia coordinator The coding of the website has been done with simple html modules providing some basic features and therefore allowed user to later produce their own html code to fit their utilisation of the website What is also interesting about the coding of MyKnet is that it was created before Facebook This way we can see that the project was not a transfer or an imitation of something already existing but a project developed especially for and by First Nation communities Mr Beaton affirms that some users migrated to Facebook but then returned to MyKnet stating that they were getting sick of what they saw there It demonstrates that there is in fact an important difference between the two social networks with one fitting the way of life of First Nations better than the other MyKnet is an example for technology and innovation that originated from within the community and is proudlyprojected outwards This is contrasted to projects where technology that is developed elsewhere and arrives in the community ready to use but pre determined in its uses and possibilities In contrast to many traditional development communication projects this innovative initiative not only demonstrates the its ability to support community needs but it also denotes development strategies as such As underlined by Mr Beaton Myknet org has always been and continues to be a free and open service provided by Keewaytinook Okimakanak Find out more MyKnet org Budka P Bell B Fiser A 2009

  • Saugeen Driftwood: The Saugeen First Nation Fibre-optic Network | FirstMile
    Affairs OMAFRA Indian and Northern Affairs Canada INAC Industry Canada as well as local revenue from broadband services The network was built completely underground which makes it durable and easy to manage It is also more ecologically sensitive as it causes little environmental disturbance For the build Fibre Xpress took on community members as staff and provided them with necessary training to be involved in network installation It was really interesting to learn how to install the network and the hand on training really helps you to understand it better said Joel Solomon Local workers from Saugeen First Nation work to install the underground fibre optic network Saugeen community member Ryan Kewagesnig was also trained to handle and splice cables His skills make it possible for the band to add additional connections in the future as they are needed Outside of construction there has been support for the project from band staff and administration including Chief Randall Kahgee whose experience as a lawyer helped the project through some of the trickier negotiations Everyone was involved in some way It was a very community driven project said Solomon Saugeen First Nation owns the network and they are responsible for everything from billing to connections to network maintenance The network allows for the First Nation to provide broadband services as well as Voice over IP services at a relatively low cost to band members The network also services local summer cottages which allows for a more sustainable business model The whole idea of the project was to make everyone s life a little bit better said Joel Solomon Now thanks to the network business are able to effectively run POS and security systems administration is able to use videoconferencing successfully and young people who study off reserve are able to do online
