Innovation on the Reservation: 
Information Technology and Health Systems Research Among the Papago
Tribe of Arizona, 1965-1980
 
In May of 1973, an unusual collaboration between the NASA, the Indian
Health Service, and the Lockheed Missile and Space Company promised to transform the way
that members of the Papago (now Tohono O’odham) Nation of Southern Arizona accessed modern
medicine.
 
Through a system of state-of the art microwave relays, slow-scan
television links, and mobile health units, the residents of this vast reservation—roughly the size of the state of
Connecticut—would access physicians remotely via telemedical encounters instead of traveling to distant
hospitals. The STARPAHC (Space Technology Applied to Rural Papago Advanced Health Care) partnership
lasted from 1973 to 1977, but its legacies continue today.
 
The mission of STARPAHC was twofold: first, to help NASA test out its
new Integrated Medical and Behavioral Laboratory Measurement System for use in future manned space flight,
second, to help the IHS assess the role of new technologies for providing care across a vast
rural landscape.
 
While other accounts have explored the role of STARPAHC as an early
telemedical system, little has been written on how or why the Papago reservation became an
experimental site for biomedical communication technologies. We argue that STARPAHC was not
entirely unprecedented, and had roots in other Cold War investigations into the role of health
technologies in domestic and international health policy. Well before NASA became involved on the
Papago reservation, the IHS had designated the Papago reservation as a “population laboratory” for
testing new communications technologies inpublic health and primary health care, and tribal
 leadership had likewise developed this role through engagements with other forms of prototype electronic medical
technologies.
 
This paper explores the configuration of the Papago reservation as an
experimental site whose value derived in part from the ability of stakeholders in the IHS,
the Peace Corps, and NASA to generalize its terrain to stand in for any number of other Native
American reservations, villages in Malawi, Liberia, and Korea, or extra-terrestrial landscapes,
respectively, as a proving ground for health communications technologies. This talk, drawn largely from
archival materials and published articles is part of a larger project on the uses of communications
technologies to resolve disparities in access to health care in the late 20th century.
