The project is led by a Steering Committee that consists of four Indigenous organizations: the Gwich’in Tribal Council (GTC), the Inuvialuit Regional Corporation (IRC), the Sahtú Renewable Resources Board (SRRB), and the Tłı̨chǫ Government. These organizations are partnering with other NWT-based organizations, the Smart Communities Society (NWT), and Aurora College.
The University of Alberta (Department of Political Science, Media & Technology Studies Unit, and School of Library and Information Studies) is involved in research and curriculum development for the project. Hands On Media Education is providing digital storytelling workshops and videography support for the project.
