The Standing Rock Development Corporation was founded by The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to create business opportunities on the reservation. So far they have been extremely successful in this endeavor with several companies - Standing Rock Telecom, Standing Rock Propane and Rock Industries.

Standing Rock Telecom and Standing Rock Propane are not only creating jobs but bringing much needed products to the region. Rock Industries has partnered with Alion Science and Technology to develop products for the U.S. Defense Department.

These solid businesses are just the beginning of how the Development Corporation will have a beneficial impact on the economy for the Sioux Nation.
