Galin Kora, Ricardo Ramírez and Brian Beaton travelled to North Spirit Lake First Nation on May 23 -25, to meet with the Chief and Council and other community members to discuss and plan for Keewaytinook Okimakanak's SMART initiative. Galin and Ricardo work with Telecommons Development Group ( which is partnering with Keewaytinook Okimakanak to develop a set of tools that will be used to gather information about how ICTs are being used in the First Nations to affect economic and social changes. Together with the community, plans are being made to prepare for a community workshop in the fall that will examine how community members and groups want to use ICTs within their community over the next three years.
