    Who We Are

    Gary and Carmen Davis Entrepreneur Magazine article

    The principles behind Davis Strategy Group, Gary and Carmen Davis, have been instrumental in working with several of the largest trade associations and economic development organizations in the United States. Well-known business leaders and entrepreneurs in Indian Country, Gary Davis, a member of the Cherokee Nation, and Carmen Davis, a member of the Makah Nation who is also Yakama and Chippewa-Cree, have led national efforts to expand economic opportunity for Tribes, Alaska Native Corporations and Native American entrepreneurs, in addition to founding and operating seven successful businesses, including Native Business, Litefoot Enterprises and Native Style Clothing, among others.
    Gary Davis’s experience stretches from Capitol Hill to the far corners of Indian Country. He initially gained notoriety as an award-winning actor and as the first Native American rap artist, Litefoot. Today he serves as the Executive Director of the Native American Financial Services Association (NAFSA), while overseeing his burgeoning businesses with his partner and wife, Carmen Davis.
    Through Davis Strategy Group, Gary and Carmen Davis have facilitated nation-to-nation relationships, including coordinating a delegation from the Mandan Hidatsa Arikara (MHA) Nation’s trip to the Netherlands to meet the Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality at The Hague, the political capital of the Netherlands. Davis Strategy Group assisted the MHA Nation in its engagement with the Dutch Ministry and in meetings with operators of the most innovative agricultural glasshouse technology providers and farmers in the world as part of Chairman Mark N. Fox’s food sovereignty initiative to empower the Tribe to produce its own food by converting compressed natural gas from the numerous oil wells on the Fort Berthold Reservation in western North Dakota to power sustainable greenhouses. The trip also included meeting with key officials at the World Horti Center in Naaldwijk, with visits to Amsterdam and Maasdijk to tour state-of-the-art food production facilities and commercial greenhouses. 
    Pivotal to that mission and much more is Carmen Davis. She is equal parts a strategic visionary and behind-the-scenes implementor, essential in guiding and overseeing every process of brand development, business expansion, nation-to-nation relationship building and more.
    As Native American visionaries and business leaders devoted to advancing economic development, self-sovereignty and sustainability for the greater good of all, our motto at Davis Strategy Group is “Run to the Roar.” Our greatest endeavors in business and in life can be daunting, but by moving forward, step by step, with strategic intention, respect and mutuality we are able to achieve win-win solutions and accomplish incredibly amazing things along the way.
