Partnering With MIBA

The Montana Indian Business Alliance (MIBA) is an action entity that agreed to join forces after the first-ever Montana Indian Business Conference in February, 2006. Support for Indian-owned businesses both off and on Montana Indian reservations is critical. MIBA was formed by individuals who recognize that on-reservation Indian economies and off-reservation Indian economies (Little Shell, for example) need specifically tailored assistance.


If you agree with MIBA's mission and can commit to regular and continued involvement please fill out the MIBA Partner Form to become a valued Partner.
