Welcome to the Northwest Native Development Fund’s “Native Business Network” TERO business directory
Tribal Employment Rights Office
This page is here to help Tribes, Native Entrepreneurs and government procurement officers to “shop Native.”
If a business is located in this directory then they have been certified, through that member’s own Tribal TERO office as a Tribally owned business, a Native Family owned business or a Tribal business enterprise.
To become TERO certified is a rigorous and thoughtful process that entails working with the Tribe’s Tribal Employment Rights office and the Tribe’s enrollment office. Each Tribe, as a sovereign Nation may have slightly different standards or processes to become a TERO certified business.
However, more important than State minority qualifications, the TERO certification is a higher standard and the last word on Native owned business certifications.
Join us in supporting Native owned businesses through the Native Business Network!
