Aboriginal Mapping Network Coordinator (Student)
The Aboriginal Mapping Network (AMN) was established in 1998 as a joint initiative of the Gitxsan and Ahousaht First Nations, and is maintained by Ecotrust Canada. Over the years the network has grown from its humble beginnings as a knowledge sharing forum for local First Nations technicians, leaders and decision makers to become a valuable strategic resource for practitioners of traditional knowledge mapping around the world. The AMN now has a mandate to support aboriginal and indigenous peoples facing similar issues, such as land claims, treaty negotiations and resource development, with common tools, such as traditional use studies, GIS mapping and other information systems.
The successful candidate will manage the AMN website. Primary responsibilities include assisting with content management (identifying and filling information gaps and editing site content), supporting identified AMN-related programming, and (depending on the successful candidate’s technical background) website management and supporting the map-based environmental activities of our First Nations partner communities. The position will require the candidate to be familiar with website content structure, content creation and management, and social media strategies and software platforms.
