The goal of this website and continental map is to instill understanding and inspiration.


Basically though, it's a hobby. The primary focus is historical rather than political. This is not some kind of study. Rather, it's just bringing into focus what has always been there.


I've been at this since 2005, and after working on it for 13 years, it is finally beginning to stablize. On a point of pride, know that I'm not inefficient, it's just that the project is extremely complicated.

One key aspect of the project is that I drive to reserves all over western Canada and the North and present First Nations with a copy of the map. While visiting, I have interesting talks, and gain information to improve the quality of the website and map.

Not so long ago, I went to north of Great Slave Lake in the Northwest Territories.

In March, 2016, just about the time of all those anti-pipeline protests in South Dakota, First Nations Seeker was delisted by Google [specifically for the keywords "first nations"]...which has taken a lot of the fun out things and reduced my already small visitor traffic in half.

In memory of my Tsimshian friend, and early supporter, Bill Jefferies... What would he think of the continental map now?
