CEO Karlene Hunter and Assistant Director of Marketing Mark K. Tilsen were at the Sitting Bull Entrepreneur Youth Camp in Fort Yates, N.D., July 14, on the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Indian Reservation.

Here are some photos of the Entrepreneurial Center, an incubation site for local reservation businesses. It was great to be part of this event, which focuses on teaching youth the basics of running a business.

The training was facilitated by Berry Striegel, who has been using the concept of "mini societies" as way of teaching entrepreneurship throughout Indian Country.

A special thanks to Jack Stevens over at DOI for giving us the heads up about this great opportunity and bringing together such a dynamic team of people.
