As a part of this year's Indigenous Connectivity Summit, the Internet Society will host a marketplace at it's dinner reception on Tuesday, November 12th from 7:00 - 10:00pm at the Grand Naniloa Hotel. Vendors selling handmade goods, art, music, jewelry, and other items are invited to participate in this market. There is no cost to vendors and the event anticipates roughly 150 attendees.
Each year, the community-led Indigenous Connectivity Summit brings together Indigenous leaders, community members, community network operators, Internet service providers, researchers and policy makers with a common goal: connecting Indigenous communities to fast, affordable and sustainable Internet.
The 2019 Indigenous Connectivity Summit will host a two-day conference that focuses on building partnerships, advocating regulatory changes, and sharing success stories of community networks throughout Canada and the United States. The community feast after the first day of the conference will serve as an opportunity for Summit participants to meet with local community partners and exchange ideas over a meal and music.
