Social Investment Opportunities with Indigenous Communities
Michael I Johnson, Native American Rights Fund
Indigenous communities in the United States are some of the best opportunities for socially responsible investors looking to grow innovative, community responsive projects and products. Tribal Nations –while offering a myriad of diverse opportunities for investors to do business - can often be a confusing place to navigate. Individuals attending this round table will gain a broad overview of Indian Country, the opportunities that exist as well as insight as to how to navigate tribal relationships. Examples of successful collaborations in renewable energy, healthcare management, tribally controlled economic development corporations, tourism, tribal joint ventures, and food systems will be discussed.
