First Chamber of Commerce on the rez

First Native American Reservation Chamber of CommerceThe Business Community of San Carlos Apache Reservation has formally established the first Native American Reservation Based Chamber of Commerce in the United States.

San Carlos business leaders met Monday, June 16, to discuss issues facing trade and commerce on the San Carlos Apache Reservation.

With gasoline prices at record highs, many reservation residents can not afford to travel long distances for needed goods and services; nor can some afford to commute to jobs off the reservation.

This fact creates great opportunity for certain businesses to open and flourish in the San Carlos area.
