About this event

The Tribal Broadband Learning Community engages in monthly convenings to discuss topics related to broadband strategies for tribal communities.

During this session, we will consider the long and, at times, complicated history of tribal nations and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in broadband planning. We will hear from leaders in the field on how the agency is engaging with tribes today and what the next steps will look like under the current administration.
