In the early 1900s, Native Americans had no concept of money; but living in a traditional way is impossible now, while poverty and unemployment are endemic on most reservations. Ellson Bennett, a Navajo Pastor and Community Leader in Arizona, sees business education for his people as the answer, but wonders: “Will they stand up…? Are they willing to change… where they take charge and ownership of the land?” Join us and learn about the issues at hand.
