The Fall Gathering: Empowering Our Community

Friday, October 7th, from 6PM to 9PM

The Oregon Native American Chamber (ONAC) thanks you for joining us as we held our 12th Annual Gathering event, “Empowering Our Community” at the Oregon Zoo’s Cascade Crest Ballroom. The Annual Gathering, ONAC’s signature event, is a unique opportunity for members, partners, and the Native business community to network, celebrate, and support the work of ONAC and its scholarship program. Each year, the Gathering brings together Tribal representatives, corporate partners, city, county, and state government agencies and community leaders to celebrate the contributions of ONAC members and the Native American business community.

Keynote Speaker
Gary 
“Litefoot” Davis

Gary “Litefoot” Davis is an enrolled member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma and is a successful Entrepreneur, Actor, Recording Artist, Author and Public Speaker.
He recently served as the President & CEO of the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development (NCAIED) which is the longest standing and largest national Native American business organization – solely dedicated to expanding opportunity for American Indian entrepreneurs and Tribal enterprises.

ONAC’s work has been guided by the belief that Native businesses are a foundation for emerging Native economies that would provide employment and educational opportunities and allow our Native communities the opportunity to break the generational cycles of poverty. Today we carry that belief forward and continue to work toward a brighter future with a thriving and connected Native American community that empowers its business leaders with resources, partnerships, and services that ensure their success and supports the educational aspirations of community members.

By supporting and attending the 12th Annual Gathering, you helped provide critical support to advance ONAC’s mission and provide ongoing scholarship support to outstanding Native American College students.
