About the Authors
  • Native nation economies have long been dominated by public sector activities - government programs and services and tribal government-owned businesses - which do not generate the same long-term benefits for local communities that the private sector does. In this work, editors Robert Miller, Miriam Jorgensen, Daniel Stewart, and a roster of expert authors address the underdevelopment of the private sector on American Indian reservations, with the goal of sustaining and growing Native nation communities, so that Indian Country can thrive on its own terms. Chapter authors provide the language and arguments to make the case to tribal politicians, Native communities, and allies about the importance of private sector development and entrepreneurship in Indigenous economies. This book identifies and addresses key barriers to expanding the sector, provides policy guidance, and describes several successful business models - thus offering students, practitioners, and policymakers the information they need to make change.

    • Provides insights into the policy, theory, and practice of private sector development on American Indian reservations
    • Offers useful information to many different audiences, from policymakers to academics to practitioners
    • Identifies and presents possible solutions to several key barriers to private sector development
    • Delivers the language and arguments many are looking for to make the case to tribal politicians, Native communities, and allies about the importance of private sector development in Indigenous economies
