Connecting Indigenous Communities

The Indigenous Connectivity Summit will be a unique event focused on connecting Indigenous communities in North America to the Internet. This community-led forum will showcase success stories of Indigenous community networks in Canada, the United States and around the globe to help find solutions to improve Internet access for all. We’ll explore themes including community development and sustainability in a two-day series of panels, presentations and discussions. A two-day training session will also be held on November 6-7 for Indigenous people who are currently operating a community network, or who are planning to deploy one. Please contact us for more details.

The Indigenous Connectivity Summit is a joint initiative of the Internet Society, the Internet Society New Mexico chapter, the 1st-Mile Institute, and New Mexico TechWorks.

Who should participate?

When it comes to connecting communities, we need everyone on board. The Indigenous Connectivity Summit will gather community network managers/operators, Indigenous-owned Internet service providers, community members, researchers, policy makers and Indigenous leadership to join the conversation. We’ll discuss ways to ensure Alaska Native, American Indian, Inuit, First Nation and Métis communities have affordable, high-quality and sustainable Internet access, and how it can support social and economic development.
