Wiring the Rez: Expanding the Borders of Indian Country through E-Commerce
February 11 – 12, 2016
Wild Horse Pass Hotel & Casino, Chandler, AZ
Join us in exploring the emerging world of Tribal Digital Sovereignty and the way it can provide jobs, economic growth, and necessary governmental funds for Indian nations. The Indian country digital revolution, of course, must start, as does the conference, with the challenge of wiring the Rez to capitalize on e-commerce opportunities. The first day of the conference will be devoted to that challenge. The second day of the conference will explore various e-commerce and telecommunications opportunities on which Indian nations have seized upon to build their economies and provide jobs and necessary governmental resources for their people, including telecommunications and broadcast industries, financial services, internet gaming and on-line sales.
The goal of this conference is to explore the ongoing need for tribes to build infrastructures that facilitate economic growth on their reservations, choosing the best projects, finding the right partners, understanding jurisdictional complexities and the necessity of fostering open dialogue with federal and state counterparts, while complying with appropriate federal guidelines.
Who should attend:
- tribal leaders and officials
- lawyers practicing in Indian country
- on and off reservation economic planning and development experts
- media developers
- business and finance specialists
- virtual casino managers and executives
- online vendors and entrepreneurs
