We are looking to confirm whether or not the Yirrganydji communities have access to devices such as smartphones, tablets, and desktops. If they do have access to such technology, then where is this access held? Do they own these devices or are there hubs/libraries where they can access these? If so, where are these hubs/libraries held?
We would like these questions answered so we can include this information into our implementation plan.
On our Yirrganydji Country page, we’ve indicated that Yirrganydji people reside in Far North Queensland, including Cairns, Yarrabah, and Kuranda. These are not all remote locations and most have great internet connectivity; therefore, they can access smart devices.
We can imagine that at least one in each household has access to these devices. Facilities like hubs/libraries are an option if available in the area (for example, see Cairns Libraries services).
I hope this helps.
