The Pueblo people have existed in the southwestern United States for millennia. Today, the Santa Fe Indian School provides secondary education to children from the 19 remaining Pueblos in New Mexico. Our group worked with Kimball Sekaquaptewa, the school’s IT coordinator, to support her broadband upgrade efforts by assessing rural internet availability and exploring ways of encouraging its effective use among pueblo populations. We collected data about the current state of pueblo internet use and attitudes through interviews, surveys, and speed tests. These findings provided a baseline dataset for further tests to build upon, and informed infographics that we created to share our findings among various native constituencies.
