Muscowpetung Launches Starlink!

In December 2022, Muscowpetung Saulteaux Nation took a monumental step into the digital age by launching #Starlink. We are proud to announce that every home in our community is now connected to Starlink, the world’s fastest satellite internet constellation available to the public.

Nestled in the Qu’Appelle Valley, with 80% of homes at its base, our unique topography presented challenges; yet, with Starlink, we’ve bridged the gap effectively, offering a powerful alternative to fiber optics.

 

 

Chief Melissa Tavita encapsulated the essence of this initiative, saying, “By connecting our entire community with Starlink, we will be providing our children greater access to resource sharing tools and higher learning. Muscowpetung is the only Indigenous community in Saskatchewan where every residence is connected to such a transformative medium at such high speed.”

And it’s not just our homes – our administration buildings, including the School, Health Centre, and Band Office, are all integrated. This connectivity ushers Muscowpetung into expanded economic opportunities and promises an enhanced quality of life for all members. #DigitalLeap #ConnectedCommunity

A massive thank you goes out to #SpaceX, particularly @BiancaReinhart and the SpaceX Communications Team, for their unwavering support and collaboration.

Additionally, our gratitude extends to Anaquod Videography for their exceptional work in creating and procuring the impactful video content that showcases this milestone.

Together, we are shaping a brighter, more connected future.
