Tribal Economic Development Podcast

Over the course of its short history, Waséyabek has worked diligently to create a sustainable path forward for the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi through economic diversification, revenue generation, and job creation. This pathway to success contains many valuable lessons learned. Tribal Economic Development, a new podcast launched in early 2024, aims to share those lessons in an engaging and meaningful way.

The podcast, which is co-hosted by Waséyabek team members Deidra Mitchell, president and CEO, and Erika Weiss, assistant general counsel, will cover a wide range of topics, including strategic planning, what it takes to kick off an economic development journey, working with your state’s economic development corporation, and more. Many of the episodes, which publish bi-monthly, will also feature special guests who will contribute to the discussion on these topics.

A major goal for the podcast is to provide valuable insight to other Tribes and companies seeking similar success in Indian Country, all while continuing to establish Waséyabek and the NHBP Tribe as leaders in this space.

“I’m hoping that by sharing our story, we can impart some wisdom, give some fresh ideas, help people avoid roadblocks, and really give a flavor of what it means to do economic diversification. That is part of our mission, to help other Tribes develop and help them along their journey in economic diversification, if we can.”
