Working with Tribal Nations
The potential benefits for those tribal nations who invest early are myriad. Rather than depend on the sheer net revenue provided by selling the raw plant to various industries around the U.S. and world, by controlling the initial processing, those nations involved will be able to substantially increase their earnings by eliminating the “middle man” and selling their pre-finished product to various industries at significantly higher prices.
Further, the potential for human resources development is enormous. Skill sets in ecological, agricultural, industrial, administrative, and many other areas of enterprise must be developed, most profitably within the tribes themselves.
