Nevada Tribes Getting Connected

By Jeremy Thacker

Three Nevada tribes are now taking steps to get Connected to broadband through the Connect Nevada initiative! Leaders for the Duckwater Shoshone, Walker River Paiute, and Washoe tribes are all say they’re ready to take action in bringing quality high-speed Internet to their tribal lands.

 

  • The Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California is already actively participating in the Connected assessment process being conducted in Douglas County. The tribe is currently gathering data for the Adoption section of the community assessment. The Washoe Tribe is headquartered in Gardnerville, NV and owns about 64,000 acres of land in different parcels.

 

  • The Duckwater Shoshone Tribe is based in Northeastern Nye County and recently participated in the Connect Nevada team kick-off meeting held in Pahrump, NV.

 

  • The Walker River Paiute Tribe has already built a public computer center on tribal land through a BTOP grant. The tribe is based in Mineral County and intends to participate in the Connected assessment efforts in the third quarter of 2012.

 

If you’re interested in working with Nevada’s Connected program to bring better high-speed Internet access, adoption, and use to the state, please contact Connect Nevada.
