Native American tribal leaders and businessmen are seeking trade ties with Turkish companies by offering them tax incentives in their territories in the United States.

Lincoln McCurdy, president of the Turkish Coalition of America which organized the trip, says Thursday that the Native American tribes belong to sovereign nations that can strike their own trade deals and offer special tax incentives.

The delegation, representing 17 tribes from at least 10 US states, has been welcomed by the Turkish government, which wants to bolster trade ties with the United States.

The delegation includes seven tribal leaders, chief executive officers of Native American companies as well as casino operators and Indian affairs experts.
