We are excited to be launching a new workshop series, Growing Tribal Economies. To be successful, a local economy should be based on the resources and strengths of a community, it should be diversified, and it should strategically meet the needs of the community. On many reservations, a tribal economy is based more on historical events than on the resources and strengths of the community.

How do we make our own Tribal economy strong, successful, and what our people need? If you’ve ever considered this question, this workshop series is for you. Session presenters will illustrate how communities can use this traditional Tribal knowledge and practice to help grow healthy, flourishing Tribal local economies.

The first session, Planting the Seeds, will be held April 28th at Sitting Bull College in Ft. Yates. It will be held three more times in May at Turtle Mountain Community College, Candeska Cikana Community College, and Nueta Sahnish Hidatsa Community College.

Visit the Event page for details and registration info. We hope to see you there!
