5. We are homegrown Dakotans. Dakotafire, at the moment, is owned and staffed entirely by women. Most of us are moms; all of us are working from our homes, occasionally as family life swirls around us. There’s no big corporation anywhere directing what we do, or distributing profits to distant shareholders. We’re just a group of grown-up Dakota kids, following a dream to use our skills to make the place where we live better.
