"In order for Indigenous communities to act as nations, they must have control of their own IT systems and data. Mohawk Internet Technologies (MIT) is pleased to participate in this project. MIT is the largest Indigenous-owned data center located on a reserve in Canada.
MIT looks forward to assisting Indigenous communities to address serious social issues with 21st century technology."
