Dream and Vision Workshop

January 25, 2020, 10:00 am to 3:00 pm

Have you ever dreamed of being part of a Native arts organization? A Native arts organization that helps you expand your market presence, and creative supplies buying power? Please join Pamela Standing, Executive Director of the Minnesota Indigenous Business Alliance, on January 25 for a Dream and Vision program. Pamela will facilitate a brainstorming workshop from 10 am to noon, lunch is included, and from 1-3 pm we will dream and vision together about ways we can collectively support Native art. Free with registration.

The Minnesota Indigenous Business Alliance (MNIBA)

The Minnesota Indigenous Business Alliance (MNIBA) was established in 2008 with a mission to ACT: Align Partners, Connect Businesses to Resources, and Transform Indigenous Economies. We put Native business first!

MNIBA is focused on building restorative and values-based economies, investment, and practices that create a pathway for community wealth building and promote well-being above the preservation and accumulation of capital.

It has been our experience as we seek new ideas that are innovative and address indigenous ownership, entrepreneurship, and equitable access to finances to combat widespread economic inequality, we continually overlook our own history. We overlook our own collective capacity and genius, how we practice reciprocity, how our people created and established complex and intricate trade routes and waterway networks beforecontact, and the principles deeply rooted in the cultural-based business practices of trade and commerce engraved in our tribal languages, as well as the long history of cooperative and collective ownership and shared economic participation practiced in our tribal communities. mniba.org
