Building Sustainable Tribal Economies: Small Businesses
Dr. Ian Record, Director of NCAI’s Partnership for Tribal Governance (PTG), discusses the critical role that small businesses owned and operated by tribal citizens can play – and are playing – in tribal nations’ efforts to build sustainable economies that are capable of supporting their achievement of their nation-rebuilding priorities.
This video, from a guest lecture to Native American Political Leadership Program students at George Washington University, is part of PTG’s effort to provide tribal nations, leaders, and key decision-makers with educational resources they can use to develop informed, strategic approaches to building sustainable tribal economies. The lecture was adapted and expanded from a presentation originally developed by Dr. Record and Joan Timeche, Executive Director of the Native Nations Institute at the University of Arizona, in 2011.
