Improving Education Among Native Americans.
Some Native Americans live on reservations in a community of
other Indians. In the United States, you only find two types of
reserved lands that are most know - military and Indian. An
Indian reservation is literally a piece of land that has been
reserved for a Native American Indian tribe when relinquished
other land to the United States through various treaties. In
recent years, Executive Orders, Congressional acts, and
administrative acts have created these reservations. While the
majority of residents are Native America, some are non-Indian.
While Native Americans have, the freedom and benefits offered by
living on a reservation, many areas are so remote that reaching
the outside world is difficult or impossible.
That means education, medical information, jobs, and other
resources are often untouched. What we see is new technologies
being created to connect Native Americans with the outside
world. Take Wild Blue for example. With internet access via
satellite, people can enjoy a fast, reliable, and convenient way
to gain any type of information needed. In fact, Native
Americans could easily use Wildblue for email access just to
keep in touch with distant family and friends.
Considering there are approximately 275 Indian reservations in
the United States, one of the largest with 16 million acres of
land spread out through Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah, that
means there are many Native Americans living separate from the
world. For young children growing up, using Wild Blue's mini
dish, they can gain access to the same educational tools as any
well else, giving them the same advantages in life for career.
Wild Blue is an exceptional offering. This small dish, which
measures just 28 x 26 inches, is capable of receiving and
sending signals all via the special Wildblue satellite. With the
dish being so small, it can be mounted on a wall, roof, or
ground pole, not being distractive in any way. Keep in mind that
Native Americans can use Wild Blue's service for residential or
personal use, or for business use. With that, Native Americans
also have opportunity to start businesses.
In fact, many Native Americans have moved forward into current
times, holding down jobs just like anyone else and succeeding at
them. However, you will also find many of the old-schooled
Native Americans who weave blankets, make pottery, and use their
skills passed down from generation to generation. These goods
are then traded or sold. Now, just imagine being able to reach
around the world in a remote place such as an Indian Reservation
and setting up a business to share those skills with people in
With the ease of Wildblue's internet connection, this is what
happens. The beautifully woven blankets and colorful pottery
pieces can be sold online. With the development of an
inexpensive website, the possibilities of reaching around the
globe are endless. Obviously, this satellite technology and the
affordability of the Wildblue plan make starting a business of
the Indian reservation possible. Wildblue internet service is
easy to use and offers up to 30 times, faster services than old,
dial-up. The bottom line is that Wildblue has created an
incredible service for people in remote locations where other
services are simply non-existent. Therefore, Native Americans
can enjoy the benefits and enjoy the doors of opportunity.
