Spectrum is an extremely valuable natural resource that is necessary for Internet access on tribal lands. Native Nations need spectrum to close the digital divide, connecting schools, hospitals, businesses, and homes across Indian Country. But the U.S. government has given itself the authority to sell spectrum, even on lands governed by Native Nations, taking away tribal rights to this resource, and profiting billions of dollars. The US government should recognize the sovereignty of Native Nations to govern their own spectrum so they can access services that have proved extremely important during this COVID-19 pandemic: distance learning, working from home, and telehealth, to name a few. Feel free to share widely! Education is half the battle.
