IN REMEMBRANCE: ALEX SMITH

We are grieved to report that our good friend, Alexandra Smith, died suddenly and tragically while trekking in Mauritania, West Africa.Alex, a bright, shining supporter and friend, is sorely missed.

In addition to her support for the Walk to Remember 2000, http://www.alphacdc.com/treaty/superior_walk.html

the Protect The Earth Journey 1998,
http://www.alphacdc.com/treaty/pearth98.html

and other similiar endeavours, Alex contributed tireless work, energy, creativity, dedication, and love to the Brain Box Digital Archives Project, the Maawanji'iding project.

The "little brain box," part of an ongoing effort, is a CD-ROM for Mac and PC, containing hours of stories and hundreds of images and archival documents related to the history and culture of the Ojibwe communities in the ceded territories of northern Wisconsin and the Great Lakes.

Maawanji'iding is the result of six years of collaborative work between hup!multimedia and tribal members of the Wisconsin bands of Lake Superior Chippewa or Ojibwe, part of the larger Anishinaabe Nation in the U.S. and Canada. You can learn more about it at http://www.brain-box.com.

We extend our condolences to her family. Alex will always be a part of our continuing work, for she lives forever in our hearts.
