One year of OLPC in Aboriginal Canada

Since their project launch last September, OLPC Canada has overseen a deployment of 2,500 XOs to students and teachers in 13 aboriginal communities across the country, under project manager Sean Longboat, with the oversight and support of the Belinda Stronach Foundation. Their team have partnered with a dozen groups across the country to make their work successful, including Tim Horton Children's Foundation, Air Canada, and BMO Financial. Most of their content, drawn from teachings and culture of the First Nations, was developed with the help of Ekomini.

They published an update on their work over the summer, in celebration of National Aboriginal Day, and maintain a beautiful site dedicated to the project and its participants.
