Indigenous Connectivity Summit 2023
Shaping a better digital future from Anchorage, Alaska
Indigenous communities are among the most underserved with internet access throughout North America. For seven years, a growing movement of connectivity champions has worked though the Indigenous Connectivity Summit (ICS) to change that.
The 2023 Summit was held in Alaska where attendees joined for lightning talks and panel discussions about the broadband challenges facing our communities, and heard directly from people doing game-changing work to advance digital equity.
Hosted by the Indigenous Connectivity Institute, the community-led ICS has grown to be the primary convening for Indigenous leadership and allies working across the United States and Canada to build a digital future on their terms.
The Indigenous Connectivity Institute is incubated by Connect Humanity.

While the ICS is free to attend, we’re always looking for ways to make it accessible for more people. Thanks to the Mastercard Foundation’s EleV program, we’re offering scholarships to support a number of Indigenous young people (18-35 years) living in Canada to attend the summit. These will cover travel costs, accommodation, and meals.
Applications for scholarships are now closed.
There are also a limited number of travel scholarships available for youth living in the United States.
If you have questions, contact us at email@example.com.
