EMERGING GOVERNMENT REBUILDS ECONOMY WITH GROUNDBREAKING SOFTWARE
ANACLA, BAMFIELD, BC – On April 1, the Huu-ay-aht First Nations celebrated the first anniversary of their return to self-governance and the management of their own lands. “The first year has been overwhelming, but we will persevere in these proudest of times for our people.” said Larry Johnson, Director of Lands and Natural Resources for the Huu-ay-aht.
“Managing our Lands and Natural Resources is a vital part of creating a better life for present and future Huu-ay-aht citizens” says Johnson. When faced with the choices of how to manage their reclaimed traditional lands, the Huu-ay-aht chose to develop a web-based land registry system unlike anything else ever produced.
Larry continues, “We worked with CloverPoint in Victoria to build the Land Registry, a system specifically designed to meet the needs of emerging governments.“
The Huu-ay-aht want to share the story of their journey to self-governance with the hope that they can inform and inspire other First Peoples to unlock their lands and build a bright future for generations to come.
