Project poster

Some tribal leaders and communities may not have access to the information they need. There are many factors at work, including unreliable internet access, paywalls and academic jargon, limited resources, etc. At the same time, the pressure is on tribal communities to respond to pressing issues like climate change, water security, global pandemics, data sovereignty, and more. By developing and sharing these modules, with tribal citizens as our core audience, we hope to place information in the hands of communities so they can share and disseminate this knowledge as they wish.
