South Dakota and North Dakota has different had different barometers for gauging what constituted a successful Native American, grass roots business. The majority of small businesses were compleatly started, created and funded by the owners themselves. They had very little knowledge of business information. Much of this came through interaction with wholesalers. These small business, Native American entrepreneurs were shrewd of their local marketplace and it's unique needs upon the reservations. Most of these businesses were staffed by family members. Several reasons were cited by these business owners for succeeding in their businesses. Being an aggressive go getter was one of these. Things to help these small business owners could be education on business, making loans affordable and available to them and having tribal governments more involved in these endeavors.
