Wapikoni mobile offers a creative outlet - Montreal Gazette

Wapikoni mobile offers a creative outlet - Montreal Gazette | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Travelling long stretches of road to remote destinations, they may very well  look like any other recreational vehicles on Quebec’s open highways — but they  are not. Racking up thousands of kilometres to reach small, aboriginal  communities and reserves past Sept-Îles, Chibougamau or Schefferville, these RVs  are on a mission: Wapikoni mobile is a studio on wheels."

Study showed aboriginal peoples embrace social media

OTTAWA - Research by Ottawa-based consultant Anne Taylor suggests that aboriginal peoples are embracing social media in surprising numbers.

 

-- The tendency for aboriginal peoples to use social media was at least as high as for the general population.

— Exact numbers are hard to come by, but networks set up to serve local communities are quickly flooded by users of all kinds, especially youth.

— They use social media to keep in touch with remote friends and family, fight addictions, sustain endangered languages and practices, promote environmental stewardship, engage in politics and promote culture.

— Some elders and leaders are concerned that intense use of social media will erode aboriginal culture and language.

— Many remote communities still lack broadband access, inhibiting their use of social media.
