Before the arrival of Europeans, Native Americans had thriving societies based on governing structures and property rights that encouraged productivity and trade. These traditional economies were crippled by federal law that has held Indians in colonial bondage. This book provides the knowledge for tribes trapped in "white tape" to revitalize their economies and communities.


"This book highlights innovative, tribally developed solutions, demonstrating that the path to reinvigorating tribal markets and economies runs through tribal self-governance." —Kevin Washburn, former assistant secretary of Indian affairs, US Department of the Interior

"Full of practical examples that tribes have developed and advanced to support more sustainable economies and communities, [this book] should be part of the applied economic curriculum in every tribal college." —Manny Jules, former chief of the Kamloops Band of Canadian First Nations and chief commissioner of the First Nations Tax Commission

"This important study is a must-read for tribal governments and citizens alike who are looking to establish economic sovereignty and entrepreneurial self-sufficiency." —David Sickey, Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana chairman and council member, 2003–21, and founder and CEO of Sickey Global Strategies
