Building Empowering Technology

Let’s use our technology and your expertise to do amazing things.

We collaborate with organizations to implement technology in a culturally informed, respectful way. Animikii builds tools people can use to empower their communities and lower technological barriers.

Animikii is a values-driven Indigenous technology company with products and services focused on website and software development. We recognize that technology by itself is not a solution to the pressing issues we face, rather it must be guided by a system of values that promote mutual understanding and equity.

How We Give Back

Our goals and our partners' goals are aligned with Sustainable Development Goals and UNDRIP. We see an important role for ethical technology to support the Truth and Reconciliation process.

We believe that investing in technology is one path forward for economic justice, self-sufficiency, and equitable outcomes for Indigenous Peoples and advocate that economic development initiatives transition away from resource extraction to knowledge-based economies.

Do you need direction for your technology?

As an Indigenous-owned technology company, our approach to building custom software is much different from the mainstream. With values rooted in Indigenous knowledge, we focus on partnering with purpose-driven organizations to support communities through technology. Pathfinding is a systematic approach to impact assessment, product visioning, project planning, and fundraising.

Databack eBook niiwin app on ipad

At Animikii, we are deep in the process of developing a product to support Indigenous data sovereignty and empower people through technology.

It’s called Niiwin.

We are creating a new paradigm for how stories and data interact, with relationships and reciprocity at the centre. Niiwin helps communities, people and organizations take control by lowering technological barriers to good content management, data design, governance and privacy. Thunderbirds are building tools to embed Indigenous ways of knowing, being, and seeing right into the code.

Learn About Niiwin

Here are the four elements of Niiwin:

Niiwin Code: Our expert application developers are using this code-based core to create and customize Niiwin applications for Animikii partners.

Niiwin Data: An innovative web-based interface where tables and data relationships can be designed, data can be managed, and data governance rules can be implemented.

Niiwin CMS: Our content management system empowers 200+ websites, enabling social-purpose organizations to share their impact, their voice and their story.

Niiwin LMS: We are expanding our online learning management system module to leverage all aspects of Niiwin and continue to contribute to the decolonization of online learning.
