Abstract

Indigenous peoples in Canada and around the world, for that matter, have come a very long way in addressing challenges and obstacles to nurturing and building healthy nations, communities, and economies. It has been our privilege to shed light on the resilience and tenacity demonstrated in stories and actions across this nation over the last half century. Community and business leaders have demonstrated incredible tenacity and strength in addressing the real economic challenges arising from a history of exclusion. There is a strong coterie of fellow researchers in the academy who have followed this journey, and without a doubt, we, as Indigenous people, are a powerful people, as noted throughout Carol Anne Hilton’s new book on the future of the Indigenous economy. The book, based upon her work at the Indigenomics Institute, paints a picture of a future full of opportunity and promise for those who are ready, with gratitude to those who are making the way forward.
