As part of the larger effort to invest in our Nation’s infrastructure and bring prosperity to Indian country, the Department of the Interior (DOI), the Department of Education (ED), and the Institute for Museum and Library Sciences (IMLS) are hosting a two-day, solution-driven summit on Tribal Broadband. On September 23 - 24, the agencies will host Tribes, private industry, federal programs, and other stakeholders in a two-day National Tribal Broadband Summit in Washington, D.C.
This landmark event is the chance for Tribal Leaders, representatives of Tribal organizations, representatives of schools and school districts serving under-connected Native students, federal program managers, and policy-makers at multiple levels of government to facilitate meaningful interactions. For more info about the Expanding Connectivity To Indian Country see event page at doi.gov/tribalbroadband.
The two-day summit will revolve around actionable steps to close the broadband gap and aim to identify new opportunities for the development of various partnerships.
This is just one of the many steps the Department of the Interior is taking to support the American Broadband Initiative. Last year, the Department of the Interior hosted a Broadband Roundtable.
Look for registration information coming in August.
