We provide training on a number of Geographical Information Sciences (GIS) tools including Google Earth Pro, Esri ArcGIS, satellite remote sensing with NASA and the Canadian Space Agency, computer coding and so much more! In the hands of Indigenous peoples, these can be powerful tools in the preservation and promotion of Indigenous land stewardship practices.
