Description

Natives Go Global with Manchester UK and Melbourne Australia

 

2015 Travel Dates:

November 30 - December 5

Manchester, United Kingdom


Rocky Mountain Indian Chamber rolls out enrollment for Natives Go Global.  The program aims to assist American Indian Businesses, Professionals, and Tribes in reaching the Global Market.  It focuses on four core areas: Commerce, Arts, Education, and Government/Ambassadorship.  Participants of the Delegation will travel to sister cities abroad to discuss Economic, Business, and Professional Development opportunities on a Global level.  Special emphasis is given to opportunities that partner with Indigenous populations and networks around the globe.


Since 2013, RMICC has worked to form the foundation of the program.  RMICC Executive Director (Oglala Lakota), Shadana Dickerson-Sultan, says “it started with a simple vision of what I might be able to contribute to our people, a small link in a larger chain.  I’m a humble servant to my American Indian Community, but I’m confident this could be a phenomenal opportunity to empower our people to dream big.”  In 2014, RMICC received pledge support of research from Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business (MBA) Globase Initiative.  The research team, led by Faculty and Student Leaders of the Globase Initiative,  has members from India, Russia, Pakistan, China, Korea, and other countries.

Student Leaders from the research team were in Denver November 2014 to attend the American Indian Achievement Awards and do market research with American Indian Leaders and Professionals.  The group met at the State Capitol with Executive Director of Colorado Commission of Indian Affairs, Ernest House, to learn about potential support to assist the tribes of Colorado with participation in Natives Go Global.  It was an opportunity to learn of potential Economic Development opportunities that might bid well on the global market and to get insight from Ernest regarding the Government division of the program.  The group also met with Darius Smith, City and County of Denver's Human Rights Commission and Denver American Indian Commission, to learn of potential City Level connects.  The meeting was instrumental in advancing research for the Education component of the program.  The group also met with Grace Gillette, Executive Director of the Denver March Powwow, to learn how her organization could benefit from Natives Go Global in the Arts division.  Finally, Tocabe spoke to the group about potential for the Commerce division, as American Indian Business Owners.

 

In January of 2015, the first Natives Go Global American Indian Delegation traveled to Indiana University to meet with Globase Initiative Research Teams, the First Nations American Indian Student organization, faculty and staff.  The teams presented information on Global Tax Rates, Political and Economic Stability, Ease of Doing Business, Indigenous populations in the market, Cultural Festivals of 50K+, and more.  Teams focused on four Geographic areas: Europe, Asian Pacific, Arabian Sea, and the Southern Hemisphere.  More than 25 cities and countries were included in the search, such as Brazil, New Zealand, South Africa, China, Dubai, Colombia, Netherlands, England, and Korea to name a few.  The Delegation narrowed the search to four top cities.  With the support of Globase Initiative, the 2015 – 2016 Delegation elected Manchester England and Melbourne Australia as the first two Sister City Candidates.  The 2016 – 2017 Delegation plans to focus on Tokyo Japan and Dubai UAE.  Grace Gillette, Executive Director of Denver March Powwow and member of the delegation, agrees that the program could, “be a platform to put American Indian Artists, Vendors, and Dancers on the Global Stage.  It could also entice people abroad to attend or watch Denver March Powwow via internet.”


Globase Teams will be on site at this year’s RMICC Indian Biz Expo, held in partnership with NCAIED PTAC.  NCAIED PTAC assists American Indian Businesses with opportunities to puruse Government/Federal Contracts.  Dual Globase presentations of the elected sister cities will be featured at this year’s Expo.  A vendor booth will also be featured on-site with additional information of how interested applications can sign up for the program  Research teams are working directly with American Indian Businesses to assist in personalized business plans to launch their product or service in the elected Cities.  Those businesses and Tribal Economic Development contacts interested in participating should fill out the inquiry form here:  http://goo.gl/forms/XHMUzieWNE .  The informatio booth will be at the upcoming Indian Biz Expo, Friday March 20th (Presentations 1p-3p & Vendor Booth 1p - 5p Free and Open to the Public).  To register for the Indian Biz Expo http://goo.gl/forms/Pg535Xll15
