My name is Benjamin Doolittle U.E. (6th G-grandson of Joseph “Thayeadanegea” Brant), a fraternal member of Sha’tekari:wate; one of nine sub-clans of the Kanien’kehá:ka. I am the founder of FourtyBee
FourtyBee was created with the intent of exploring drones and how they can assist the Mohawk world via the imagery they produce.
Drones have many positive uses — they’ve been used by park rangers to spot poachers and save rhinos, they can be used for news purposes to show the scope of droughts, and they can even deliver sushi at restaurants.
FourtyBee is an outlet to publish aerial photos, videos, and stories about the evolution of drone technology, documenting ongoing land encroachments; residential and commercial development. We capture images, videos, and stories from landmarks to people, we research the history of Grand River Country from a Mohawk perspective.
I have over a decade of professional photography & video experience. On August 01, 2018, I received a remote pilot airman certificate with a small UAS rating for commercial drone operation under the Mohawk University Aviation Program and not under FAA or TCA and hold both general liability and drone specific insurance coverage within the Haldimand Province as a valid resident.
