Vanessa Roanhorse (Navajo) is the CEO of Roanhorse Consulting, an Indigenous women-led think tank that co-designs wealth and power-building efforts that invest in Indigenous entrepreneurs. She is also the co-founder of Native Women Lead, a national organization dedicated to growing Native women into positions of leadership and business.
She took time out of her busy day to share some her wisdom that she's aquired over the years with the young entrepreneurs participating in the Native Nations Institute's Native American Youth Entrepreneurship Program. Her insight and advice helps reframe what it means to be Indigenous in the world of business and her powerful message is relevant to any Native person trying to start their own business or service.
