This is no ordinary social network… Created by Indigenous people for Indigenous people…

The Okwaho Network is an Indigenous inspired social network that connects Canada’s First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples to the greater global Indigenous community. It is a great place to meet old friends and make new friends, whether it’s across the road, or around the world, the Okwaho Network keeps you connected.

Created by two ambitious Indigenous entrepreneurs from Canada, the Okwaho Network is a social innovation achievement for all Indigenous peoples to celebrate. Heck, it’s not everyday a social network is created for the express benefit and use of Indigenous peoples! So come, share your stories; connect with your culture, your people, and your community.

On behalf of the founders, Shyra and Rye, welcome to the Okwaho Network.
