Updated at 9:05 am on 21 September 2012
A United States-based brand consultant says Maori could take part in business ventures in a better way than native Americans have.
Hampton Bridwell, from the US-based company Brand Logic, is speaking at a two-day 'Business is Business' conference in Rotorua, hosted by Te Arawa Federation of Maori Authorities Incorporated and the Maori Research Institute.
Mr Bridwell says native Americans have a big focus on gambling assets, but that has not necessarily proven to be sustainable.
