You could win $100 by signing up for One Feather

The Okanagan Indian Band plans to begin using a new online voting and engagement tool for members called One Feather.

One Feather is an easy to use online voting tool that can be accessed on your phone and from any computer or laptop. This tool will make life easier for those living off-reserve or who can’t make it to meetings to vote and share opinions.

One Feather has several advantages that make it a good option for OKIB members. First, only Band members will be able to fill out surveys and vote. Unlike other survey tools, One Feather is restricted to allow only members to sign up to vote, so the results will reflect the wishes of OKIB members.

The input gathered though One Feather will be used to help guide the direction of important decisions that affect members.

To encourage people to sign up for One Feather we will be holding weekly Band trivia contests with $100 cash prize draws each week. Everyone who answers the trivia question will get their name entered in the weekly draw for $100.

With One Feather, your personal information and your answers will remain confidential and anonymous at all times.

Here’s how to win:

1. Sign up at OneFeather.ca. To join, you must:

  • be a Band Member,
  • provide your status number,
  • have an email address,

What are your values related to economic development?

The Band is beginning a project to update the Economic Development Plan. We will be sending out a quick survey with the goal of finding out what the values are in the OKIB community, in relation to community economic development.

We realize that we all have hectic schedules and some of us do not live on the reserve so being able to attend community meetings is not always possible for everyone.

To get your input on this important topic we are going to try a new on-line survey system called One Feather. Read the cover story in this edition of Senk’lip or check it out at onefeather.ca.

One Feather is an online voting/survey site that is secure and designed for Indigenous people. Simply create an account and you will be able to vote and respond to surveys quickly and safely.

Hard copies of the survey will be available at the Band Office for anyone unable to complete the survey on-line.

Watch your inbox for an invitation to provide your input on community economic development starting in late November.

If you have any questions email Jenelle Brewer at [email protected] or call 250-545-3424.
