The National Heritage Digitization Strategy digitized these Windspeaker editions as part of a pilot project. Windspeaker was one of three titles digitized under this project. They are now also available on the Library and Archives Canada (LAC) website at Windspeaker volume 4 (1986-87) to volume 33 (2015)
Windspeaker’s journey began March 18, 1983 under the name AMMSA (Aboriginal Multi-Media Society of Alberta). This archives begins after the newspaper’s title changed to Windspeaker after a contest to find a new name was held.
These newspapers were digitized with the generous funding of the Salamander Foundation as part of a pilot project to learn more about newspaper digitization in Canada.

Digitizing this title would not have been possible without the support of Windspeaker’s Publisher Bert Crowfoot, who granted LAC permission to digitize the material.
LAC is developing a search interface to provide better browsing and full-text search of the material. It also continues to digitize the remaining titles included in the pilot project.
