INDIANnet objectives are to: 1. Work with Tribal governments and all Indian communities, both urban and rural, to establish electronic access to public information. 2. To develop "one-stop shopping" and Indian-friendly federal information, including 1990 Census information, necessary for effective Tribal decision-making. 3. To ensure that this flow of operation is interactive so that Tribes can begin to develop electronic information about themselves. 4. To work with Tribes to avoid electronic colonialism and empower Tribes and all Native Americans to be active participants in the information age. 5. To help coordinate the many Indian, multi-media telecommunications activities currently taking place. 6. To establish an Indian on- and off-ramp to the national information highway. 7. To use technology for cultural preservation and education.
