National and International Initiatives
Focused on Broadband Training Best Practices


AIHEC and Lone Eagle Consulting Seek Partners for Broadband Training Best Practices Clearinghouse


The Montana Indian Business Alliance (MIBA www.mibaonline.org  )  held a Native Youth Entrepreneurship conference in January and below is my resources handout. There are many great related resources on the web which I'm busy collecting and plan to disseminate.  Since MIBA was formed 2 years ago, similar orgs have popped up in half a dozen states following this model. There is talk of a national meeting for these orgs.


The Indigenous Commission for Communications Technologies in the Americas

Major interest in sponsorship was evident by all attendees.  This is an initiative to watch.

Native Ecommerce Successes

In Browning, Montana, Ron Ridesatthedoor sells alfalfa as bunny food www.sunroadsfarmory.com to supplement his farm income. He was elected commissioner of Glacier county and created his own wireless Internet business, too.

Web Raising Events:
After Lone Eagle train-the-trainers sessions in Wolfpoint, MT, Fall 2007, for the Fort Peck Community Ecommerce Incubator grant listed above, local trainers taught youth how to create their own free ecommerce pages complete with affiliate programs with Amazon.com and Walmart which return commissions of 10-17% for items purchased online. See "Rez Bread" at
http://snarf2000.tripod.com/  which has Walmart and Amazon products posted. We held Web-raisings where everyone creates a free ecommerce site in less than an hour. More Successes at http://lone-eagles.com/ecommerce-successes.htm     and  http://lone-eagles.com/montana-successes.htm
