Rumie is bringing our innovative technological solution home to Canada, where youth in Indigenous communities may lack access to current learning tools. Focusing on Reconciliation for Education, Rumie will provide libraries of offline resources which include topics such as; job skills, language preservation, Canadian history and employment training. These libraries will also include physical and mental health tips and enablers, and stories that will inspire youth and community to practice both traditional and new activities.

Rumie has teamed up with community in Nipissing First Nation, Ontario, Canada, being Nbisiing Secondary School and the Bi-gzhaadge Binoonjiiyak - Children’s Integrated Program to send tablets full of resources related to culture, health, and homework support to students in grade 1 to 12.

This way students and their families can access great, free interactive resources without worrying about slower internet speed. Working with Elders, students and teachers in Nipissing First Nation and North Bay, we came up with a list of topics that are most needed. We are going beyond mandated curriculum and including information to support traditional learning and mental health. We don't want the youth to lose out on these resources just because the internet is slow!
