What does successful Dine' entrepreneurship look like?

  • Twin Arrows Casino (map)

The Dine' economy is at a crossroads.  There is a critical need and opportunity for our communities to be more in control of our economy and how we care for our families, our land, and how we protect our culture.   Entrepreneurship is a path to economic sovereignty but there has to be a clear strategy to achieve that.  How can we use entrepreneurship to achieve this goal?  What needs to be done for our communities to support social entrepreneurship and promote innovative problem solving?
