Summary Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to look at some of the issues surrounding access to and the use of new media technologies, and questions why this is an area of study that receives a marginal focus in academic work.
Design/methodology/approach – Drawing on previous literature in the area of information and communications technology (ICT) adoption and social exclusion, this paper combines the methodological frameworks adopted by hegemony research and more general studies of new media.
Findings – The paper discusses the impacts of new media use by Indigenous communities, within the framework of discussions about a “global Digital Age”. The paper also briefly looks at the social
implications of new media adoption.
Originality/Value - It questions the assumption that adoption and use of new media is for the "good" or "benefit" of all. It will be of value to researchers of ICT adoption by Indigenous communities.
