Meet hosts Erika Weiss of Barnes & Thornburg and Deidra Mitchell of Waséyabek Development Company, as we discuss our backgrounds in tribal culture and our experience working in Native American law and policy, economic development, and small business development. We talk about some of the topics we plan to explore with this podcast, including how to set up an economic development company on behalf of your tribe, strategic planning, leadership and sovereignty, diversifying revenue streams, the Harvard Business Model as it relates to American Indian Tribes, and more.
