Environmental Management Consulting
NAICS: 541620, 541690, 541990
We recognize that Tribes play a major role with regards to natural resource and environmental management within the Great Lakes Region and many of them have Treaty-reserved rights as adjudicated by Federal Court rulings entitling them to shared management of both Inland and Great Lakes resources and affording them a legal property right in said resources.
TEK is an accumulating body of knowledge, practice, and belief, evolving by adaptive processes and handed down through generations by cultural transmission, about the relationship of living beings (human and non-human) with one another and with the environment. It encompasses the world view of indigenous people which includes ecology, spirituality, human and animal relationships, and more.

The Concepts Group’s consultation services take on many forms. We often consult on a project basis for proposed actions that may affect cultural resources of interest to Tribes. If private sector activities have the potential to affect Tribal properties or resources, all interested Tribes will be consulted early in the planning process and their concerns will be addressed to the greatest extent possible. Respect for the sovereign status of each Native American Tribal government is key to our consultation services. We liaison directly with federally recognized Tribes on a government to government basis, recognizing the sovereignty of each Tribe.
Building and maintaining positive and productive relationships with the Tribes is the cornerstone of effective consultation.
It is the goal of the consultation process to identify both the resource management concerns and the strategies for addressing them through an interactive dialogue with appropriate American Indian communities.

Economic & Community Resilience
NAICS: 541611, 541990, 611430
As in any community, a solid network of partnerships is needed to address the specific needs of its community members. Further exacerbating the preparedness dilemma, most Tribal nations are in remote, rural communities with few response resources readily available. This increases the chances for delayed response in a major event, leaving families to care for themselves for extended periods without assistance. As many Native communities struggle to maintain a meager existence, the resilience gap continues to widen. To address resilience gaps, a public-private sector collaborative approach was used to develop 7th Legacy, LLC’s “Economic & Community Resilience Group” for community outreach by Tribal stakeholders partnered with non-Native commercial entities.

While much of the food world continues to rally around the concept of “local first,” MIIJIM emphasizes “Local and Native” as a dual priority. It’s a fine balance of being culturally driven, culturally aware, and culturally appropriate while also being business-focused. MIIJIM is an opportunity to magnify Native American culture and ensure jobs and foods are sustained in their communities.
Food is the ultimate connection between humans and the land, and many of these entrepreneurs are continuing their traditions, just as their ancestors have done before them.
