The Resiliency of Indigenous Economies in Action
With tens of billions of dollars being settled on First Nation communities it's our time to stand up and take our rightful place in Canada's economy. Not all of us grew up with warm clothes, running water, proper schooling we are now moving forward, as an educated force to not only change our personal future but to reconcile out our pasts.
As Carol Anne Hilton, in the Corporate Knights on April 19, 2019 It’s time to change this story! It's time for Nations across Canada to take their rightful place in the world economy. Dara Kelly states that “Indigenous people have gone through four economic stages of development: 1) Disruption 2) Entanglement 3) Emergence 4) Empowerment”.
This webinar will speak about how the First People have always been resilient and moved through these four phases with determination and frustration.
