Hello from Lil'wat Nation
I'm Tracy and I'm the GIS Program Manager for the Lil'wat Nation. We are centered around Mount Currie, BC which is about 120kms northeast of Vancouver. Our Traditional Territory is about 800,000 ha and we have a Band Membership of 1850 (as of 2005!).
We have been running our little GIS Program out of the Land & Resources Department of the Mount Currie Band Administration for just over a year now. We've had lots of successes and learned lots of lessons over the past 14 months.
I think that the AMN has the potential to be an incredible resource for First Nations communities across Canada and indeed the world. I'd love to see some collaborations between Nations to share resources especially in the areas of data collection, training and expertise.
We are eager to share our resources, knowledge and experiences with other First Nations and encourage anyone to get in touch. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
