  • Wikipetcia Atikamekw Nehiromowin. We supported the growth of the Wikipedia in the Atikamekw language. At the end of 2020, there were nearly 1,400 Wikipedia articles written in Atikamekw. See all Wikipedia articles in Atikamekw. Furthermore hundreds of pictures and videos documenting the traditional activities and the territory of the Atikamekw Nehirowisiw, the Nitaskinan, have been uploaded on Wikimedia Commons, including photos taken by a drone financed by Wikimedia Canada.
  • Indigenizing Wikipedia. On 23 June 2020, an online event via Zoom was organized by Ryerson University Aboriginal Student Services called "Indigenizing Wikipedia". This event aimed at learning how to close knowledge gaps and make content more meaningful in a collective effort to lift voices, raise knowledge, and improve representation.
