Indian Industrial Development Manual For and By Native Americans.
Preston, Richard, Ed.
Because cultural, historical, political and economic factors combine to form an economic development environment unique to tribal lands, industrial development on Indian reservations must be done by Indians. This manual, written by and for Indians, can be used for implementation of reservation industrial development. After a review of the circumstances that create the economic development environment unique to the Indian context, the planning process is discussed as it is applied to the comprehensive socio-economic development of a reservation. A plan for organizing the physical group to carry out the economic development program is offered along with ways the program itself may be organized for most effective operation. Sources of financial assistance to American Indian reservations are listed. Strategies for attracting potential industries to the reservation are given as well as techniques and procedures to be utilized when working with prospects. Discussion is also devoted to such needs as: establishing confirmed industrial development sites; solidifying industry already existing on the reservation; and promoting the industrial development program on three levels to the members of the tribe, to the tribal council, and to potential capital investors. The final chapter discusses economic development implications and opportunities for the Alaska Native population. (DS)
