The Wichita and Affiliated Tribes Executive Committee will hold a one day Community Visioning Session to gain tribal community input on the economic development vision, community priorities and other priorities defined by the Wichita Executive Committee from their recent planning sessions in December 2015 and the one held in January 2016 with the Industrial Development Commission.
The purpose of the community visioning session will be to provide information on the Tribe’s current prioritized initiatives and to collect input from enrolled Tribal members on what they envision economic development to be for the Tribe. Discussion will include what opportunities are available, resources available, top business opportunities, top business challenges, action plan update on progress from the planning sessions, and what enrolled tribal members believe the economic development priorities should be.
As part of a process to educate the tribal community on current Executive Committee economic development initiatives, the Wichita Executive Committee will conduct a listening work session with enrolled Tribal members to gain tribal participation in determining priorities as part of the decision making process. The Community Visioning Session will be designed on a consensus building approach among all tribal participants that provides for community input and dialogue on Best Practices for building Tribal economies. The basis of the presentation and discussions will be designed from the Wichita Executive Committee Economic Development Executive Summaries that were done with the facilitation of Blue Stone Strategy Group.
On behalf of the Wichita Executive Committee, I encourage our tribal membership to come out and participate in this Community Visioning Session. -President, Terri Parton

The Land Buy-Back Program for Tribal Nations implements the land consolidation component of the Cobell Settlement, which provided $1.9 billion to purchase fractional interests in trust or restricted land from willing sellers at fair market value. Consolidated interests are immediately restored to tribal trust ownership for uses benefiting the reservation community and tribal members. There are approximately 245,000 owners of nearly three million fractional interests across Indian Country who are eligible to participate in the Buy-Back Program. More information can be found here.
