#2020IMW

November 16-18, 2020 | FREE EVENT

The 2020 Virtual Indigenous Mapping Workshop is FREE for all participants. Over the year, we have have worked on new approaches to enhance and expand our geospatial capacity development opportunities for Indigenous Nations and organizations. With the 2020 Indigenous Mapping Workshop, we are excited to launch the Indigenous Mapping Network. The Indigenous Mapping Network is the indigenized space for Indigenous geospatial technology, training, and community. Members will have exclusive access to Indigenous mapping content, workshops, live and self-paced courses, speaker series, and tools. Join us in building our new community!

Mapping is about identity and maps are a really powerful tool for being able to convey your place on the earth. The power of the cartographer is  to decide what goes on to the map and what gets excluded from the map. For far too long Indigenous Peoples have been excluded from the map. The whole idea of the Indigenous Mapping Workshop is really about demarcating the map and being able to reclaim space while designing maps that are more culturally relevant and have Indigenous identity.
