Panel Session: The Economic Development Potential of Indigenous Trusts
This panel will provide a brief overview of Indigenous trust models and structures; panelists will discuss ways that Indigenous trusts can play a pivotal role in (re)directing capital back into community and tailoring investments to align with community values.
In the spirit of respect, reciprocity and truth, we honour and acknowledge Moh’kinsstis, and the traditional Treaty 7 territory and oral practices of the Blackfoot confederacy: Siksika, Kainai, Piikani, as well as the Îyâxe Nakoda and Tsuut’ina nations. We acknowledge that this territory is home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3 within the historical Northwest Métis homeland. Finally, we acknowledge all Nations – Indigenous and non – who live, work and play on this land, and who honour and celebrate this territory.
