An Indigenous Approach to Community Wealth Building: A Lakota Translation

The Lakota Translation reflects the inspiration and new models that come from a group of visionary people and organizations working together to strategically build equitable, sustainable economic systems. It is rooted in the cultural and historical context of Native communities and connects the elements necessary to build thriving local economies. The opportunities coming from these efforts—which support small business and enterprise development, job training, financial education, access to capital, and policies that help grow local Native economies—are mutually reinforcing and will build greater economic security and reduce the economic disparities in Native communities.
