Meet Bruce Buffalo, Founder of Mamawapowin
Mamawapowin Technology Society is on a mission to give the community of Maskwacis something millions of other Canadians take for granted: its own high-speed network.
The first part of the network is up and running. Mamawapowin wants to expand the coverage to include the three other Nations in Maskwacis.
This connectivity is a crucial step in developing employment and cultural opportunities for all four of the Nations in the Maskwacis Territory.
What You're Helping Us Accomplish
Free Connectivity for Maskwacis
Mamawapowin Public WiFi Network is currently available to 500 + users monthly in the Maskwacis area.
Allowing First Nations to share their experiences with each other and to communicate their cultures to the world.
Expansion of Coverage
Equipment purchases with installation and configuration allow us to reach an ever-expanding number of people in Maskwacis.
Connectivity is critical to the success of our youth in an increasingly global world. We want our youth to have access to educational resources, technology training, and cultural discovery.
