We learn from each other through community conversations on how we can create an economy that is community driven and respectful of our Crow Culture.  For example, Plenty Doors hosted two economic forums to identify economic opportunities in 2018.

 

We provide education, technical assistance and other resources to help people help themselves start and strengthen small businesses.  Plenty Doors was recently awarded the Native American Business Advisor grant. 

 

We partner with other organizations to better meet the needs of our community.  Partnerships have allowed us to provide education opportunities and services, like VITA, Business planning, social marketing, vendor training, ServSafe and Quickbooks training.  

 

Partnerhips have included:

  • Little Big Horn College

  • St. Labre Schools

  • MT Department of Transportation 

  • MT Department of Commerce 

  • MSU Extension

  • Native American Development corporation and Native American Community Development Corporation

 

We work in collaboration with community stakeholders to promote access to healthy food, to improve communication, and collaboration among organizations and to promote food sovereignty. 

 

We offer asset management services such as education sessions on Financial literacy and wealth management. 

 

We support the Apsaalooke Community Market – A group of local artist and vendors who wanted to create a sustainable venue for local artists and vendors to make money and to share their culture. 

We had 16 scheduled markets throughout the 2018 tourist season.
