THIS WILL BE DONE BY APPROACHING CORPORATE SENIOR MANAGEMENT TO PARTICIPATE IN A JOINT EFFORT TO SHARE SKILLS AND METHODS WITH TRIBAL DECISION MAKERS AT SANTA ANA PUEBLO IN CENTRAL NEW MEXICO. THE PRODUCT OF THE RESEARCH WILL BE A PACKAGE OF INFORMATION ON THE MUTUAL BENEFITS OF TRIBAL/PRIVATE SECTOR CO-OPERATION AND A CASE STUDY OF HOW THIS CO-OPERATION CAN WORK IN THE REAL WORLD OF BUSINESS ENTERPRISE.
