The Divide: James Clark on preserving Native American culture with broadband

This week on the podcast, we hear from James Clark, a fellow with the American Connection Corps (ACC), who is working with Mille Lacs Band tribal leadership to preserve his ancestors' Ojibwe language. Clark, whose name in Ojibwe is Ozaawaanakwad, is one of 50 individuals tapped for a fellowship through ACC, a program spearheaded by Land O'Lakes and Lead for America that supports individuals seeking to improve broadband connectivity and digital inclusion in their communities. We discuss that effort, along with the causes of the digital divide at Mille Lacs and what they and other Indigenous tribes need from policymakers.
