Seneca Telecomm was formed in 2010 when Seneca Holdings, LLC, the Seneca Nation of Indians' $28 million business development and investment arm, acquired a controlling interest in CT-COMM, a growing provider of wireless and telecomm services to the government.
Seneca Nation of Indians
The Seneca Nation of Indians, one of the six nations of the Iroquois Confederacy, continues to occupy aboriginal lands in Western New York, including sovereign territories in Niagara Falls and Buffalo. It traditionally controlled trade and protected the Western territories, earning the title “Keeper of the Western Door.” The Nation today operates a $1.1 billion economy that employs more than 6,300 people, native and not. It operates and manages a variety of retail, gaming and casino and hotel operations on its territories. The Nation recently expanded greatly its capital building and social services operations, with new projects including improvements to roads, sewers, water treatment plants, water-supply facilities and low-income and elderly housing. The Nation operates a “good-neighbor” policy under which it seeks to expand its relations with groups, governments, charities, private and public corporations that wish to interact collaboratively with the Nation.
