This is my longest running company, founded in 2003, after a brief stint living in Silicon Valley. I wanted to create a company rooted in the Indigenous community that I grew up in. We're a mid-sized digital agency serving Indigenous-focused organizations by maximizing their social impact through technology. Animikii means "Thunderbird" in Ojibwe and is based on Coast Salish territory on Vancouver Island.
