Helping Native American business owners network and expand

Updated:

QUAPAW, OKLA. - Owning and running a small business can be difficult, but for Native Americans taking on the task there is an organization willing to help.

The American Indian Chamber of Commerce in Oklahoma helps businesses get on the right track.

The Chamber meets each month and provides Native American owned companies the opportunity to network with each other.

The Chamber also serves as a resource center for businesses hoping to expand their markets.

A member of the Eastern Shawnee Tribal Enterprises signed up for the chamber.  Robert Wolfinbarger expects a boost for his company.

"It's been very good, to this point," Wolfinbarger says.  "We've worked on two or three of the most recent casinos, and then we've done several military projects, which have come through this networking kind of deals as well."

The American Indian Chamber is open to anyone.

The group's next meeting is April 21 in Tahlequah, Oklahoma.
