The Digital Justice Work of Native Public Media

WASHINGTON, DC – Broadband, is it a utility or a commodity? For Native Public Media, the Internet is a utility, like electricity that should be available to every person and household; not a commodity to be sold to the highest bidder. While there are many perspectives on how to categorize Broadband, ultimately everyone wants it. The want or need of broadband and the Internet ranges from having an open and free internet to improving technology for higher speeds to building infrastructure to connect rural American homes. For Native Americans living on their tribal lands, it is all of the above.
