First Nations Technology Council

The First Nations Technology Council is a section of the First Nations British Columbia website specifically focussing on the potential of technology in First Nation communities.  Although much of the site is dedicated to expanding technology, much of the time this is connectivity in the form of high speed internet, there are other technology related undertakings that are of interest.  The Youth Cafe area provides links to aboriginal youth and contains some interesting discussion related to ongoing projects.  This discussion includes youth working with elders to record Aboriginal culture and history as well as teach elders the use of technology.

There is much more info on this site relating to policy regarding implementation, community plans for technology implementation, technical support and application forms.  Overall this is a valuable site for Aboriginal communities who already have technology in place and even more valuable for those looking to implement technology into their communities.
