New Paqtnkek Website Launched

We are proud to announce the launching of, the redesigned website. The new site has a number of features. These feature are going to facilitate better communication between the band, and the entire community. This blog is one of several key features that will allow us to communicate on a regular basis, so that the most recent information is available to everyone. The website is constructed using a WordPress content management system. Which multiple members of the community will be trained on, so individual departments, and organizations can maintain their web presence. Should they wish too.

Highland Multimedia has committed to ensuring that this tool will be supported in such a way that the whole community can contribute too. Almost all of the website can be customized to adjust text, photos, PDFs, and the addition and removal of pages.

If you have any suggestions or questions about this project we would welcome all feedback to
