Creating a digital career path for Native Americans

 


Native American contributions to U.S. national security hasn’t been widely appreciated. The Navajo Code Talkers of World War II played an amazing role in helping the U.S. and its allies achieve victory. Today, more than 22,000 Native Americans serve in the armed forces and have the highest per capita serving in the military of any ethnic group protecting the homeland.

Unfortunately, many living on tribal land are not being provided with the education and necessary training to gain access to opportunities in the emerging digital economy. Because of a variety of circumstances, many young Native Americans are living at poverty level with little hope of economic advancement. There is a pathway to possibly change their predicament via investment and training of a workforce that could provide cybersecurity and data analytics careers.
