On August 21 through 22, 2023, I attended the Chickasaw Listening Conference in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. As a citizen who lives outside Chickasaw Treaty Territory and a member of the Arizona community council, I and 300 plus other members from various community councils in various states attended the first listening council since 2007.
February was a productive month at AIPI with events, multiple training’s, and representation at external events. As you can see, we participated in several events related to digital equity, digital inclusion, and digital sovereignty, with Dr. Morris and EJ John, both imparting different sets of expertise in the space at different events.
It’s the end of the year, and everyone (that I know because I’m of a certain generation) on social media is posting their Spotify Wrapped 2022 playlist. So as I started thinking about the end of the year for AIPI and being a music person, I naturally saw the correlation.
