Áan Chúuphan is the product of 4 years of planning and construction. In 2011, the Karuk Tribe was awarded a grant from USDA Rural Development Community Connect Program. This grant enabled the tribe, in cooperation with Siskiyou Telephone, to build fiber optic cable from Orleans to Somes Bar, and to build and install a new communications tower overlooking the community. Whenever possible, Karuk Tribal members were employed during the construction, and native-owned businesses were hired for the construction, including EarthPrint Technologies and Native Link Communications. The tribe also extends special thanks for all their help on this project to community members Penny Eckert and Bari Talley.
In addition to home internet access, the Orleans Computer Center and Panamnik Library offers computers for use by the public at no cost. Please stop by the center to check your e-mail or look into getting a college degree online. The Computer Center is located at 459 Asip Rd.
