Abstract

In 1998, the U.S. Department of Commerce Telecommunications and Information Infrastructure Assistance Program funded the Pascua Yaqui Connection project. This grant initiative was created to address the Digital Divide. Programs were established to bridge this gap for communities traditionally behind in information and communications technology (ICT) and underserved by connectivity and access to the Internet and advanced computer systems. The Pascua Yaqui Community Resource Lab was established by the joint effort of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe of Arizona, Pima Community College and the University of Arizona (Betts, 2002).
