From The Ground Up: Annual Native FORGE Conference Showcases Financial and Business Resources for Native American Entrepreneurs | FORGE
For this year’s Native FORGE Conference, the theme was “From the Ground Up” highlighting the spirit of grassroots learning, growth, and building a solid foundation to serve future generations. Held in partnership with the University of Arizona Office of Native American Advancement & Tribal Engagement, entrepreneurs from the newest cohort from the Fort Yuma Quechan Tribe were joined by past cohort members from the San Carlos Apache Tribe as well as entrepreneurs from the Tohono O'odham Nation and Pascua Yaqui Tribe at the conference. Gathering together in downtown Tucson at FORGE at Roy Place, the event provided valuable entrepreneurial resources as part of the U.S. Economic Development Administration University Center program to bolster Indigenous entrepreneurship.
After slightly above normal temperatures today, a cooling trend through the latter half of the week will eventually result in slightly below normal temperatures by the weekend.
A weak weather system for Friday and Saturday may bring a return of light precipitation chances across southern and central Arizona.
