Rezkast is a mix of silly to the serious, it includes videos, photographs, news articles, social gathering for Native Americans of all Nations. 1300 members and counting.
It was founded by Valerie Fast Horse, a computer savvy Director of Information for the 1,900 member tribe in northern Idaho. "There are very few tribes doing this," Fast Horse said. "I have very few peers in Indian country."
There are other Native American sites such as MyTribalSpace.com and Native American Tube. But RezKast is one of the biggest and the best.
Fast Horse graduated from North Idaho College in Coeur d' Alene in computer science, then joined the Army, where she worked in information management. She is also a council member of her tribe and secured a government grant to get wireless service to her reservation and a computer lab that teaches computer classes to tribal members.
