Winnebago tribal executive to consult for BIA

Lance Morgan, the head of the Winnebago Tribe's economic development corporation, has accepted a consulting position with the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Morgan, chief executive of Ho-Chunk Inc., will help assistant secretary Dave Anderson on economic development issues. He will work three days a week at central office in Washington, D.C., until December while continuing to work for the Winnebago Tribe.

Morgan, a Winnebago tribal member, is credited with creating economic development on the Winnebago reservation. In 1994, he started Ho-Chunk Inc. with a small amount of gaming revenue and has watched the company expand to more than $100 million in revenues and several businesses.

Anderson tapped Morgan to help with the recently created deputy assistant secretary for economic development and policy position. The post was created a result of the BIA reorganization.

Ho-Chunk Inc. owns Indianz.Com and its sister e-commerce site
