Blue Stone Insights

Blue Stone announces new name and renewed focus.
September 16, 2021

For the last several years we have been working hard helping Tribes strengthen sovereignty, economic vitality and community stability.  We see the most success however when we are treated as a partner, not a vendor. This small distinction became so apparent, we believe it is worth putting in writing.


A name to better say what we do.

Partnership is what has built the relationships that we now enjoy with all of the Tribes that we proudly serve.

To this end, as we look back on one of the most challenging times in recent history, we ourselves have emerged with greater clarity about what we as the Blue Stone team bring to the table. This is why we have changed our name… but only slightly.

Because partnership is at the core of who we are and what we seek, we are shifting from Blue Stone Strategy Group to Blue Stone Strategy Partners. 

It may seem like a small distinction as it is a qualifying statement beneath our logo, but this change to partners is one that holds great significance to us.

Partners are those who come alongside, not ruling over another.

Partners are equals.

Partners are close, not distant.

Partners value what is best for each other.

Partners work toward achieving a common goal.

Our new name is a promise.

Our name change will serve as a beacon and a reminder that every day, we are here to serve and protect the Tribes that we partner with to ensure and strengthen your sovereignty. It is also a promise to you, our partners, that this is a deep and abiding relationship that we value and cherish.

We look forward to sharing with you our own evolution as we continue to serve all of you in partnership.
