Waipareira-owned Whanau Tahi has made a critical strategic partnership with an Alaskan Native-owned information technology company.
It will work with Arctic Information Technology to deliver technology its Whanau Tahi Navigator program and connected services to tribal organisations throughout North America.
This solution complements the Arctic IT Tribal Platforms- Enrollment program used by many tribes.
It will be deployed either on the tribal premises or in the Microsoft Government Cloud,.
Arctic IT Chief Technology Officer Dave Bailey says tribes now have a purpose built, cost effective solution that can adapt rapidly to change.
He says Tribal Platforms and Whanau Tahi Navigator software provides an unmatched ability to capture data, metrics, and analysis on efficacy, while providing deeper level of social engagement for tribal communities and their families.
Both firms have been involved in the Tiwahe initiative - a joint-program funded by the Department of Interior and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. Tiwahe is a Lakota word for family or household.
This a pilot program aimed at empowering native families and providing successful foundations for youth to achieve more.
Whanau Tahi's North America president and chief executive Stephen Keung says the software was designed to connect family service providers and funding agencies to empower family-centric care for transformative and generational change.
