American Indian Tribes with their increasing economic development, including Indian Gaming, are finding themselves with unprecedented revenue to invest for the economic future and well-being of their tribal members. In addition, many Tribal Governments are becoming more independent of the federal government.
Change is creating significant opportunity for tribal economic growth and development today and into the future. These opportunities also create many new challenges. Where do tribes go for independent financial and investment advice? Since the advent of Indian Gaming, tribes are being overwhelmed with stockbrokers, investment firms and others who suddenly have an interest in tribal affairs. Who can you trust? Where can you get the knowledge and experience you need?
