Digital Mi’kmaq is a groundbreaking new initiative led by Ulnooweg, that aims to bridge the digital divide faced by Indigenous children.
Founded more than 30 years ago with the vision to uniquely steward whatever is needed — in education, innovation, culture, finance or business— Ulnooweg is now a leading Indigenous organization in Canada.
In Canada, Indigenous peoples are the fastest growing demographics, yet currently face the greatest digital divide. With statistics continuing to underscore that less than 1 quarter of one per cent of Indigenous people work in STEM careers today, Digital Mi'kmaq is focused on delivering qualitative STEM focused education to children living on reserves. From Computer Science to Big Data, Animation to 3D Modeling, Digital Mi’kmaq is building lasting capacities for a whole new generation of children by delivering an enriched digital curriculum to First Nations children across Nova Scotia.
