The National Center for American Indian Economic Development (NCAIED) has announced that the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma and Cherokee Nation Businesses, L.L.C., will be presenting title sponsors of RES Oklahoma 2012, the NCAIED’s new two-day multifaceted Reservation Economic Summit (RES) event to be held from November 14th-15th at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa, OK.
“We are pleased to host NCAIED’s first-ever RES Oklahoma conference at Hard Rock this year,” Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma, Bill John Baker said. “NCAIED’s long-standing commitment to economic self-sufficiency in Indian Country is an admirable goal that the Cherokee Nation supports and shares.”
One of the largest Indian Tribes in the United States, the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma is the federally-recognized government of the Cherokee people and has inherent sovereign status recognized by law and by treaty. The Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma is located in northeastern Oklahoma. Cherokee Nation Businesses (CNB) L.L.C., is the economic engine of the Cherokee Nation. CNB owns companies in the hospitality, gaming, personnel services, distribution, manufacturing, telecommunications, and environmental services industries. Together, these businesses have revenues of nearly $500 million every year and earn nearly $10 million in profits.
“Through their support of RES Oklahoma, the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma has taken a leadership position in assisting the NCAIED in growing tribal economies, both in Oklahoma and throughout Indian Country,” said Gary Davis, NCAIED President and CEO. “RES Oklahoma will bring increased awareness to the many economic development opportunities that exist in Oklahoma and, as importantly, it will explore the many ways Oklahoma’s tribal economy can further grow nationwide via private sector opportunities and enhancing tribe to tribe business ventures.”
RES Oklahoma will feature respected tribal leaders, state, and local elected officials and top CEO’s, networking, teaming opportunities, business development sessions, American Indian Procurement Fair, and much more. RES Oklahoma marks the expansion of the NCAIED’s highly successfulReservation Economic Summit (RES) into additional regionally focused events throughout the nation. In 2012, the NCAIED’s national event, “RES Vegas,” raised the most revenue and enjoyed the largest attendance in the history of RES – solidifying RES as the premier American Indian business conference and trade fair in the Nation. Additional regional RES events will soon be announced.
