The success of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe is obvious to anyone who passes through the reservation or the Twin Cities. The band has built a strong foundation in hospitality and related industries.
While driving through the reservation this summer, I was especially impressed by the Grand Market Grocery. Travois follows Indian Country economic development closely and always seeks to share success stories. Home to a pizzeria, a movie theater, a bank branch and grocery store, the Grand Market complex was humming with activity on a recent Friday afternoon.
It is always great to see our friends and colleagues at Mille Lacs and to see tribal economic development initiatives that are making a difference on the ground.
