As a model, other states are watching us to see how this works out.’ The coalition is all set to lure different world travelers along with a variety of development partnerships, like the North Dakota Tourism Department, tribes in the state, Nativeway Tours and the North Dakota Indian Business Alliance.

With the real experiences focusing on culture, history, food and art that are featured across our region, we are in a great place to continue to grow our experiences, workforce and economy.’
