Arizona tribes welcome business to reservations
The Gila River Indian Community, the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community and the Tohono O'odham Nation met with the Building Owners and Managers Association of Greater Phoenix to promote their reservations as good places to do business.

The Gila River and Salt River tribes are located in the metro Phoenix area. Their lands sit along major interstates and in lucrative areas.

The Tohono O'odhams live on a reservation about the size of Connecticut. The tribe hopes to diversify its economy with real estate and other projects.

"Why would anyone want to do business on the reservation? Because you have a captured customer base," said Travis Nabahe, chief executive officer of the Tohono O'odham Nation Economic Development Authority, The Arizona Republic reported.
