The Nü Communications Alliance is dedicated to building Tribal Networks that are an asset for Tribal communities.
We seek to increase access to Indigenous language and education programs, increase protection of sacred sites, strengthen environmental monitoring, community health, economic development, and improve the overall quality of life for Indigenous communities by improving broadband infrastructure across reservations, trust lands, and surrounding areas,
Support the goals of individual Tribes through collective bargaining, advocacy, training, resource sharing and informal collaboration.
In early 2020, at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, many Indigenous Nations applied for licenses through the FCC's 'Rural Tribal Window'. This process marked the beginning of collaborative efforts between the Bishop Paiute and Lone Pine Paiute-Shoshone Tribes of Payahuunadu (Owens Valley, CA). Since that time, we have worked together as individual sovereign Indigenous Nations for the mutual benefit of both Nations.
