The Minneapolis Fed has launched Indian Country Currents, a web site designed to serve as an information gateway for individuals and organizations engaged in building thriving economies in Native communities. The site's features include an extensive list of Indian Country related articles and reports; directories of the American Indian tribes, tribal colleges, and state-tribal entities located in the Ninth Federal Reserve District, plus listings of federal agencies and national nonprofits that work on Native economic development; a calendar featuring Indian Country related workshops, conferences, and other events; and information on the Ninth District's Indian Business Alliances. Slide shows on the home page trace the Minneapolis Fed's history of helping tribes build governance, infrastructure, financial access, and resources to support sustainable private business development on reservations.
