Professor Robert J. Miller in Tribal Business Journal

In Tribal Business Journal, Professor Robert J. Miller says “While economic development in Indian Country is a frequent topic, 99 percent of the discussion concerns government owned and operated businesses. But tribal leaders, Indians, and reservation communities need to focus on the potential of private sector economies.

These businesses have the potential to revitalize and sustain tribal communities for that Seventh Generation, the great, great, great, great, great grandchildren that tribal cultures always consider when making major decisions. We need to put that same kind of forward-thinking analysis into planning and creating sustainable economies in Indian Country.”
