First Nation Youth stake out their role in Canada’s recent federal election
The name “Project 60” highlights that it was not until 1960 that First Nation people won the right to vote in Canadian federal elections.
The videos featured in Project 60 are made by Native Youth, the nation’s fastest growing population segment.
Using new mediums of communication and social media, these youth aim to educate and empower others on the importance of voting. They describe the impact of elections on themselves, and on their communities.
On April 27th, 2011, the young filmmakers presented their work to a live national videoconference audience of over 600 people!
The event also showcased how First Nations organizations across Canada collectively have the most robust videoconferencing network in the country.
