This course will delve into the question of what really makes you an entrepreneur, and how we can all recognize ourselves as leaders even if you are a “one-person-show” or a budding business, or even just a new business idea. We will explore the nuances of ethical business operations with quadruple bottom line priorities (profit – planet – people – purpose), explore leadership through a distinctly Indigenous lens and using the framework of a Lakota sense of purpose, learn the theories of (non-Indigenous) Servant Leadership methods, cover general leadership and team-building tactics, and discuss how to cultivate an environment of reciprocity in your operations. We will introduce homework exercises to create and refine business core values that express the soul of the operation and drive your day-to-day decisions large and small. We will hear the stories of Native and non-Native producers and how they take an active approach to embodying leadership in their day-to-day work. This course will be full of opportunities for engagement, small group breakout sessions, storytelling, and journaling/silent exercises and ideal for new and emerging entrepreneurs in agriculture-based businesses.

This workshop is part of the Intertribal Agriculture Council/ Southwest Grassfed Livestock Alliance Meat to Market program, an extensive online business training for livestock producers all across Indian Country, encouraging them to embrace the possibility of direct marketing their meat and providing skills to do so. For the Regenerate conference, content will be relevant to all Native and non-Native individuals pursuing their own business endeavors, now or in the future.

At the end of the workshop, we’ll screen Cattle Calling Ep. 2 ft. Caney Creek Ranch in East Central Texas where Kimberly Ratcliff draws on her experience working at a financial firm in New York City and looks for new technologies to help her family’s ranch be more sustainable for the future.

Speakers: Chance Weston, Food Sovereignty Director, Thunder Valley Community Development Corporation Olivia Tincani, Program Curator IAC-SWGLA Meat to Market Program / Principal, Olivia Tincani & Co Guest Speakers Kimberly Ratcliff, Caney Creek Ranch Gilbert Louis III, Acoma Number 8 Ranch, and Benita and Dorthea Litson, of Litson Ranch.
