What is Walk With Us Project?

Our project involves using 360′ photography and Google Street View to provide a platform for youth to share stories of their culture, traditions and communities. Part of our mission is to help youth put their own rural and/or First Nations communities on Google Maps Street View. Read our history to find out how we got started!

Where We’ve Been

To date, we have visited Mattagami First Nation, Moosonee, Taykwa Tagamou Nation and Constance Lake First Nation in Ontario where WWU members captured 360′ imagery to upload to Google Street View – quite literally putting their communities on the map. Explore some of the Street View in these locations below!


Where We’ll Go

As we grow and build relationships with more communities, Walk With Us can go virtually anywhere. Let’s update Street View coverage in northern and rural communities together, and tell our unique stories.
