dc.description.abstractThis thesis research examined the implementation of the Ktunaxa Nation network and explored its ongoing use and development. The Ktunaxa Nation is comprised of four Aboriginal communities in south-eastern British Columbia, Canada. The Nation established internet infrastructure throughout the communities primarily to enable the dissemination of the Ktunaxa language of which there are only 24 speakers remaining. The purpose of this research was to examine the various uses of the Ktunaxa internet network related to land and language, at both a community and organizational level. Methods included Nvivo-based content analysis and restorying which enables a number of individual experiences to be refashioned into one comprehensive set of events. Final recommendations are provided.en
