I learned about this website after attending the conference on indigenous peoples, forests and climate change on October 8th 2015 at UBC. The conference included indigenous people from all over the world talking about what they are doing in their countries to prevent deforestation and environmental harm. When I asked the representatives how they use the Internet and technology to further their cause, most of them had basic websites, with links to Facebook and Twitter. Some, such as the representatives from the Congo area, did not even have that, but collaborated with the press and used television. It seemed to me that Canadian First Nations are on the cutting edge of technology use. This website is an example of what the Indonesian indigenous people use. Compare it to my previous posts from Canadian First Nations websites in effectiveness of getting their message out, ease of use and relevance. You will have to use Google Translate.
