Patrice Kunesh Highlights Tribal Homelands’ Economic Advantages

Former Fellow Patrice Kunesh (’89) wrote an op-ed for High Country News about the critical role that Indian Country should play in rural America’s economic recovery (“Indian Country Can Help Solve Rural America’s Decline,” April 22). “Reservations have important economic strengths to offer rural America, including the ability to attract tourist dollars (from casinos but also amenities and culture), agriculture and natural resources (minerals, forests, water), and unique access to federal funding sources,” Patrice wrote.
