Native View: Tribal-Owned Business - Economic Development
Tribal Chairman Richard LaFromboise and Dale Nadeau discuss the obstacles to and support for local economic development.
Tribal-owned businesses contribute to economic development on reservations, providing jobs and earned income for Indians and allowing them to better determine their own future.
The Turtle Mountain Chippewa (Ojibwa) Tribe and Prairie Public did a series of programs on topics relevant to life on the Turtle Mountain Reservation, hosted by Pam Belgarde. The series portrayed a variety of aspects of Native American life to the public, both Indian and non-Indian, including tradition, art, music, government, gaming, health, education, and economic development.
