5th Annual Tribal Government E-Commerce Conference — Wiring the Rez: Innovative Strategies for Business Development via E-Commerce CLE Conference

The Indian Legal Program at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University is pleased to be hosting  Wiring the Rez: Innovative Strategies for Business Development via E-Commerce CLE Conference, the fifth Annual Tribal Government E-Commerce Conference.

The goal of this conference is to explore the issues surrounding the development of Tribal Digital Sovereignty and e-commerce in Indian Country. Experts will examine the shifting political, legal and tax landscape in Indian Country, explore modern business models including: tribal operation of technology and data centers, online lending, online sports betting, blockchain technology and crypto currencies. We will also review jurisdictional and regulatory complexities and address the necessity of fostering open dialogue with federal and state counterparts, and the possible implications to tribal sovereignty, and the ongoing need for tribes to finance and build infrastructures that facilitate economic growth on their reservations while complying with appropriate federal guidelines. Attorneys, scholars, financiers, tax, technology and gaming experts along with innovative tribal leaders will share strategies and practical implementations of diverse business models of current and future e-commerce and infrastructure enterprises to bridge the digital divide.

Who should attend: tribal leaders, tribal government council members, lawyers practicing in Indian Country on and off the reservation, economic planning and development experts, media developers, business, finance and technology specialists, virtual casino managers and executives, online vendors and entrepreneurs, regulatory experts, scholars and students of Indian law.
