|Invitation to Opening of Maliseet Achievement Center April 2008|
IBM, SeniorNet, the Native American Chamber of Commerce, and the U.S. Department of the Interior Office of Indian Energy and Economic Development (IEED) are proud to invite you to the grand opening of the Houlton Band of Maliseet Technology Achievement Center at the Maliseet Recreation Center in Houlton, Maine.
The Houlton Band of Maliseet Technology Achievement Center is part of the ‘Hope and Harmony for Humanity Initiative’, a program to bring technology access and education to low-income residents of rural Native American tribal lands. It will serve as a computer lab for free computer access and education, and truly an ‘Achievement Center’ that also offers tribal members of all ages education on health issues, cultural history and life biographies, return to work/employment skills and intergenerational programs.
The grand opening will include Houlton Band of Maliseet Technology Achievement Center Volunteers, tribal elders, elected officials and members of the local and national media. We’d love to have your participation in this event. Here are the details:
