OneFeather is a Mobile APP uniquely branded to each First Nation - and provides the ability for the first time for that First Nation to truly 'own' and manage their own communities within the digital landscape. OneFeather is about Nation Building.


If you could help create the latest generation of on-line mobile communications...I mean, really create a mobile communication APP that was all about changing the world for First Nation communities and beyond - what I call "Nation Building"...would you? Of course you would...cause that's the kind of people we are...and I call it OneFeather :)


We are building next iteration now...and need your help. The first iterations were all about creating the foundations of a solid and scalable mobile application based on the design specifications and heuristic intelligence from our beta test client base - 2 First Nations and 1 First Nation Agency. In fact, you can download OneFeather now from APP Store (Android version coming soon!) AND follow us as OneFeather provides mobile communication support and engagement for the world's largest annual migration of First Nation communities - Tribal Canoe Journeys 2014 Qatuwas (Bella Bella - Heiltsuk - July 13-19, 2014).

We are in the early stages of OneFeather development...moving from the rudimentary to more intelligent design; to superior user interface and improved brand development. Your support and feedback will provide us additional resources and essential intelligence to continue the OneFeather Mission and Vision...let me say thank you for coming this far, and hopefully, you'll chose to continue along with us as we undertake this important work.

For more information about OneFeather (the text) and the next iteration designs you'll be helping us build and implement (the images) in real-time please see below, or check out our website/blog at

OneFeather is a Mobile APP...but it's my hope, or perhaps better stated as my "design intention" that OneFeather fulfil a much needed communication tool which truly meets the unique needs of First Nation governments, service and community agents (and in fact, any organization, business or proponent that needs to own the community in which they wish to engage within the digital media landscape) AND most importantly provides a trusted and purposeful and relevant communication and community engagement tool for their members, citizens and users.

This is Nation Building - at the essential and ubiquitous point of contact for all of us in the new modern world - our mobile phones.


  • OneFeather is a mobile application platform – an APP.
  • OneFeather is a highly customizable platform which will allow each First Nation to uniquely brand to their identity; scales to the exclusive needs of their community; solves critical membership data management issues; and is decidedly convenient, easy to use, engaging and useful.
  • OneFeather is a directed and focused communications tool for Band Governments, Treaty Groups, Tribal Associations and First Nation service agencies to their respective citizens, members, users and staff (but has application for any group, business, movement, community or agency).
  • OneFeather is unique: it's a private permission based social network dedicated to the useful and relevant communication needs, engagement and feedback and provide the essential control and oversight of their community - ensuring their brand and messaging is not cluttered with the voluminous and irrelevant content of modern social media.
  • OneFeather is much more than a social media application – it is your organizations branded and customizable smart phone application dedicated to your client management, communication and linkage needs - and will provide an array of utilities and features for more robust and relevant community engagement.
  • OneFeather allows each Nation/Agency to “own” their community (not someone else – like FaceBook) and control their messaging, maintain real-time instant communication, and manage their online presence where their members live and connect – their mobile phones.


At its core, OneFeather is a private social network targeted at First Nation government, agencies and service providers. But I am always anxious about describing OneFeather in this way. 

As a simple mobile product of our modern age, and granted in its initial form OneFeather will be rudimentary, it will have the expected and essential (and standard) features of any mobile communication tool or APP.  We have taken our time to make sure the APP is solid in its programming and back-end…in its form and in its function…after all it must work AND it must work well.  In doing so we have kept it’s starting features sparse.

But let’s be clear – OneFeather is not another social media application.  OneFeather is your organizations branded and customizable smart phone application which will allow each First Nation (or organization) to uniquely brand their identity; scales to the exclusive needs of their community (members, staff and friends); solves critical membership contact and management issues; is decidedly convenient, easy to use, engaging and useful communication tool; that is dedicated to your communication and engagement needs. 

OneFeather is about Nation Building – plain and simple!

In May 2014 we will release the OneFeather 1.0 for beta-testing with select First Nation organizations…and this will be where we really begin the exciting enterprise of creating a Nation Building instrument!  We will work closely with these organizations seeking input and guidance in building a truly useful mobile phone application to serve First Nations.  We will monitor use and engagement to ensure that future builds capture the heart and soul of what it means to be First Nation in this modern world.  Finally – and forever – we will be relentless in our pursuit of creating the most inspiring and essential communication and engagement application available to First Nations.

OneFeather is not just another mobile or social media APP. Nation Building is about people coming together, and through the coalescing of thoughts, contributions and efforts the creation of a big and bold and beautiful First Nation communities…this is what OneFeather must be designed to help accomplish…and with your help – this is the OneFeather we will build together.

This is the OneFeather mission, vision and purpose.


Well, that's a good question...and it's not that it's hard to answer - it's just that I am not really that comfortable talking about myself. Which is not to say that I don't enjoy talking and the best way for you to learn a little about me is to check out my activities, passion and purpose online at these places:

I have the pleasure of working with many First Nation communities and people throughout western Canada and Washington State. I would cherish the opportunity to share with you those experiences through the digital photographs I take.

I can't guarantee that they will win any contests or even be very artistic...but what they do tell - every one of them - is a story about people, souls and community.

Join me on this incredible journey!

I believe that action we take as human beings has a consequence...good, bad or otherwise...I also believe that for the most part it's up to us individually to ensure the consequence matters.

This perk is about changing the world and telling two stories incredible stories. The first is through a limited edition branded OneFeather T-shirt (Y,S,M,L,XL,XXL)...a conversation starter for sure, and one that will help us build the OneFeather legacy and impact ubiquitous change in First Nation communities through-out Canada.

The second a much more personal one grounded in my Rotary experience (I have been a Rotarian for almost 10 years) and their demonstrated efforts 24/7/365 to change the world.

When you make your contribution I will personally donate $5.00 to Rotary International on behalf of OneFeather towards the fight to eradicate Polio and emergency efforts of disaster relief and response.

Thank you again for generous consideration...and changing the world :)
