Indigenous Connectivity Summit 2019

‹ Back
Including Indigenous and Native Hawaiian peoples in the decisions and solutions that shape the Internet is a vital part of closing the global digital divide.

Each year, the community-led Indigenous Connectivity Summit brings together Indigenous leaders, community members, community network operators, Internet service providers, researchers and policy makers with a common goal: connecting Indigenous communities to fast, affordable and sustainable Internet.

The Indigenous Connectivity Summit 2019, held in Hilo, Hawai’i, on November 12-13, focused on building partnerships, advocating regulatory changes, and sharing success stories of community networks throughout Canada and the United States.
