Economic Development On The Moapa Paiute Reservation

Download: 

Moapa is not the only tribe to implement successful economic development strategies. Its uniqueness lies in having done a lot with very little in a very short time. The tribe combines its labour with outside resources to create a multiplier effect throughout the reservation economy. The tribe started with small projects which logically led to larger, more sophisticated efforts in related Fields. Moapa's accomplishments have been based more on the maximum utilization of limited resources than on massive infusions of federal dollars. Article Headings: The Farm, The Leather Shop, Housing, Construction Company, Community Center Building Project and Grocery Store, The Greenhouse Harvesting Operation.
