Workshops & Speeches
These sessions are designed to cater to various audiences, including youth, students, and professionals from Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations. We ensure that each workshop is tailored to the specific needs of the audience, addressing relevant topics and adding our unique Animikii perspective.
Indigenous Data Sovereignty
One of our key focus areas is Indigenous Data Sovereignty, which emphasizes the rights and interests of Indigenous peoples in relation to data governance and management. Presentation workshops in this domain aim to empower Indigenous organizations by providing them with the tools and understanding necessary to begin asserting control over their data and utilize it effectively for the betterment of their people.
Indigenous Youth Coding Camps
Our interactive camps are designed to introduce youth to the world of programming and technology in a fun, engaging, and supportive environment. Our expert facilitators inspire and educate the next generation of digital innovators, equipping them with critical skills that will not only benefit their future careers but also contribute to the broader technological landscape. Each is designed for the age range attending, and the time available. Sessions are typically one - four days.

We offer a sliding scale format for pricing for our workshops, based on your organization's budget and social impact requirements. We are committed to giving back to Indigenous Elders, Nations, Matriarchs and community organizations and can often offer workshops.
