Module 2: Cyber Journey

Here are a few websites that I have come across:

  1. Indspire is a charity for Indigenous people by Indigenous people.  When I worked with young ladies from the Kahnawake reserve in Montreal we attended a conference given by Indspire and it was something that none of us had ever experienced before.  We had various speakers from various Aboriginal sectors speaking to the students their fields of study ranging from communications, to medicine, to the military.  The speakers left the students motivated and inspired about their futures.
  2. Muskrat Magazine is an online magazine whose primary focus is on Indigenous arts and culture.  The magazines focus is to exhibit original works of art in various forms and to engage in critical commentary.  Muskrat magazine uses both rural and urban settings and uses media arts, wireless technology and the internet to distribute information in an eye opening and interesting manner.
  3. https://fasdprevention.wordpress.com/ is a blog created to increase awareness about Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder.  Since I am looking at social media use among Indigenous peoples, I am looking into what blogs are out there and what areas are these blogs in.  Healthy and well-being, seem to one of the big concerns among indigenous peoples and many blogs seem to be appearing in these areas for individuals looking for help.
  4.  http://www.naho.ca/radio: Radio Naho is a new initiative from the National Aboriginal Health Organization aimed to bring health issues to the masses from a holistic perspective.  The goal is to educate individuals with an emphasis to be placed on prevention.  This radio station is geared to youth and young adults and wants to educate and influence healthy behavior by bringing on experts, advocates and role models.
  5. An Index of Indigenous Podcasts  this post found on Media Indegina website lists various podcasts created by Indigenous individuals.  There is no secret that it can be hard to find Indigenous representation in podcasts but this list is start.
