08. High Tech Tourism and Forestry: Donna Cona, Yukon Soapberry Stories and Dolly Watts

Country Available: Canada, USA

Few businesses remain viable in the ever-changing high-tech sector but in this episode of Venturing Forth you'll learn about one that is making it: Donna Cona, a company offering business and technology advice and solutions. Established by John Bernard, a Maliseet from New Brunswick, Donna Cona is responsible for the entire computer network system at the Department of Indian Affairs across the country and was instrumental in creating a viable technological infrastructure for the newly-formed Nunavut government. Also be prepared for a few laughs as we feature a comedy troupe show created by an Aboriginal lawyer who is taking advantage of the Yukon's lure as a tourist destination.
