Mercatus Storytelling 101


Mercatus strives to change the narrative of entrepreneurship to better demonstrate the diversity and vibrancy of Portland. In Storytelling for Your Biz, Cookie Zvovushe will lead you through several topics that business owners/storytellers struggle with, and provide you an opportunity to build the basics of storytelling.

Topics include:

Speaking with confidence

Being safe and vulnerable

Piecing together your story arc

Cookie Zvovushe (who writes under the pseudonym Jagger Blaec) is a professional storyteller. Cookie has shared stories within national publications such as O Magazine and The Washington Post while also sharing words on more local platforms such as The Portland Mercury and Portland Monthly. Most recently, Cookie has joined the team of the local production of NYC’s The Moth StoryHour as one of the show’s producers. And when Cookie isn’t sharing stories or helping give others a voice to share their own narrative you can share space with Cookie in a yoga class. You can follow more of this journey on Instagram at @Basic.Blaec.Girl.

Proceeds from this event will go to (Com)motion Center

ONAC Hosts Oregon Native Enterprise (ONE) Launch Event

ONE LAUNCH Photo Collage


The ONE Coalition has developed a business development series utilizing the voices of our community and representing our collective wisdom in support of business development and ownership for Native American entrepreneurs across Oregon & SW Washington. On August 3rd, ONAC hosted business owners, program participants, Tribal representatives, and government partners at Hatch Lab PDX to learn more about this exciting new program and the StartUpOregon Platform as it supports Economic Development opportunities by leveraging web-based technologies to expand our reach.

We are so thankful to our foundational supporters, Kauffman Foundation, Meyer Memorial Trust, The Oregon Community Fund, Business Oregon, and The Collins Foundation for making this program possible.


Project Information The purpose of the Project is to improve the safety and operations on I-5 between I-405 and I-84, of the Broadway/Weidler interchange, and on adjacent surface streets in the vicinity of the Broadway/Weidler interchange and to enhance multimodal facilities in the Project Area. In achieving the purpose, the Project also will support improved local connectivity and multimodal access in the vicinity of the Broadway/Weidler interchange and improve multimodal connections between neighborhoods located east and west of I-5. The Project addresses the following primary needs:

• I-5 Safety: I-5 between I-405 and I-84 has the highest crash rate on urban interstates in the State of Oregon. Crash data from 2011 to 2015 indicate that I-5 between I-84 and the merge point from the NE Broadway ramp onto I-5 had a crash rate (for all types of crashes) that was approximately 3.5 times higher than the statewide average for comparable urban interstate facilities.

• I-5 Operations: The Project Area is at the crossroad of three regionally significant freight and commuter routes: I-5, I-84, and I-405. As a result, I-5 in the vicinity of the Broadway/Weidler interchange experiences some of the highest traffic volumes in the State of Oregon, carrying approximately 121,400 vehicles each day, and experiences 12 hours of congestion each day.

• Broadway/Weidler Interchange Operations: The complexity and congestion at the I-5 Broadway/Weidler interchange configuration is difficult to navigate for vehicles (including transit vehicles), bicyclists, and pedestrians. This impacts access to and from I-5 as well as to and from local streets. The high volumes of traffic on I-5 and Broadway/Weidler in this area contribute to
congestion and safety issues (for all modes) at the interchange ramps, the Broadway and Weidler overcrossings of I-5, and on local streets in the vicinity of the interchange.

• Travel Reliability on the Transportation Network: Travel reliability on the transportation
network decreases as congestion increases and safety issues expand. The most unreliable travel
times tend to occur at the end of congested areas and on the shoulders of the peak periods. Due to
these problems, reliability has decreased on I-5 between I-84 and I-405 for most of the day. Periods
of congested conditions on I-5 in the Project Area have grown over time from morning and
afternoon peak periods to longer periods throughout the day.

Bring the American Indian Tourism Conference to Your Community

2017 AITC hosted by the Oneida Nation
AIANTA is looking for tribally-owned hotels and resorts with significant meeting space to serve as the conference site for the American Indian Tourism Conference in 2020 and 2021.
Hosting a conference, not only brings economic benefits to the host, it also brings visibility at a national level to influence leaders and policymakers on tribal tourism issues. The host or hosts get the opportunity to showcase their unique property, destination, attractions and arts at the pre-conference mobile workshops.
The proposal must come from the host tribe or tribes and the hotel. Non-native owned hotels can apply if they have a tribal host. Involving local and/or regional tribes in the planning and execution of events is important. The local hosts will create a Host Committee to help plan the opening reception and pre-conference mobile workshops (formerly called “familiarization tours”) to make the annual conference more meaningful to attendees and help fulfill the mission of the organization.
Deadline: September 30, 2018
5:00 p.m. Mountain Time
We encourage you to attend the AITC in Albuquerque NM on September 17-20. Meet the board and members and share your destination. To purchase a booth or register for the conference, visitAITC2018.com. For more information about AIANTA, visit aianta.org. For more information about tribal tourism, visit NativeAmerica.travel. If you aren’t listed on NativeAmerica.travel, remember listings are free for tribes and tribal enterprises thanks to the support of the DOI Bureau of Indian Affairs!
