Speaker: Phillip Belangie, Program Manager for The Native American Collateral Support (NACS) Program & Indian Country Economic Development (ICED) Program.

A few weeks before his assassination, Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote, “Now our struggle is for genuine equality, which means economic equality.” Join us for a presentation of the Montana Indian Equity Fund and how an access to capital program has been a catalyst for developing individual success in Montana’s Indian Country. The initial focus of the presentation is on how capital combined with traditional tribal entrepreneurial behaviors is energizing and re-energizing individuals, community organizations, and government institutions. The presentation concludes with how to guarantee community success over the long-term, develop institutional sustainability, and how we are modeling and teaching, repeatable methods with the goal of creating generational change in Montana’s Indian Country and Montana.
