Indigenous Connectivity Summit 2021

Indigenous Connectivity Summit 2021

The Indigenous Connectivity Summit (ICS) community will gather virtually at the 5th annual ICS 12-15 October, 2021.

Each year the ICS community comes together to discuss ways to ensure Alaska Native, American Indian, Inuit, Native Hawaiian, First Nations and Métis communities have affordable, high-quality and sustainable Internet access, and talk about how connectivity supports social and economic development.

The ICS 2021 will highlight Indigenous communities pursuing innovative and independent ways to connect to the Internet and their unique challenges to connectivity – further complicated by exclusion from national markets and the policy making processes that support them.

A diverse group of community network managers and operators, Indigenous-owned Internet service providers, community members, researchers, policy makers and Indigenous leaders will join in a community-led discussion to share the latest on connectivity solutions, funding sources, next level advocacy and success stories from Indigenous community networks in Canada and the United States.
