The Hopeful Hopi Tribe | Business Facilities - Area Economic Development, Site Selection & Workforce Solutions

Today, an article out of Arizona caught my attention for a couple of reasons. First, I don’t often come across economic development news stories that highlight the great plans and ideas of Native Americans. Secondly, when I do come across such news, it usually details the construction of a casino on an American Indian reservation.

That’s why this article about the Hopi tribe’s ambitious and inspiring development plans propelled me to blog. Rather than opening a casino, which has become a money-making trend it seems, the Hopi tribe is opening the “Gateway to Hopi Land,” which includes a business park, motel, office space, and more. It sounds like a smart, comprehensive economic development plan to me.
