Abstract

This paper explores the history of cyberspace and its use today by Aboriginal
community research projects in Canada. It focuses on the free use of social

mentoring to promote these resources. The paper highlights the author’s
personal experiences with the use of new networking tools, and the need
for community involvement in cyberspace.
