Missouri River Resources to host energy summit

By Jerry W. Kram

The Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, home of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara nations, is now the source of more than half of all the oil produced on Indian Reservations in the United States.

The oil boom has brought in millions of dollars of royalty and tax income for individual mineral owners and the tribal government. The question for the people of the MHA nation is how to capitalize on this windfall for the long term benefit of the generations yet to be born. The tribally owned Missouri River Resources tribally owned oil company is hosting a summit meeting in New Town to examine the opportunities and problems oil development has brought to the reservation on Nov. 20 & 21.

The "Economic Sovereignty" Summit will be at the Northern Lights Community Center in New Town, North Dakota, USA. Mr. David Williams, CEO, Mr. William McCabe, COO, and the Board of Directors of Missouri River Resources, LLC, will be Official Corporate Hosts.

The Fort Berthold Indian Reservation, home of the Mandan Hidatsa and Ankara (MHA) Nation, is situated upon nearly 1 million acres of land in the Northwest Region of the State of North Dakota - within the Bakken Oil Play: the largest find of technologically recoverable oil minerals in recent history within the United States, reconfirmed by the United States Geological Survey in 2013.

This event assembles the experts to dialogue, exchange ideas, create strategy, and develop and strengthen partnerships.

"It’s about achieving Economic Sovereignty through Energy Development," said Tribal Councilman Ken Hall, who is also Chairman of the Board of Missouri River Resources, LLC.
