Navajo Nation Telecommunication Regulatory Commission
The Navajo Nation is the largest band of Indigenous people in the United States of America, and exercises sovereignty on Navajo Tribal Lands. The Navajo Nation resides in the southwest desert portion of the United States and is approximately 61,000 square kilometers. The Navajo Nation Telecommunications Regulatory Commission (NNTRC) was originally established in 1984, and consists of seven commissioners appointed by the Navajo Nation President and confirmed by the Government Services Committee of the Navajo Nation Council. Navajo Nation Code delegates the NNTRC to promote and regulate all telecommunication matters on the Navajo Nation. The NNTRC works with United States Federal Communication Commission and 3 state regulatory commissions to bring telecommunications to all on the Navajo Nation.
