01. Reclaiming Economies

Country Available: Canada, USA

Fed up with a dependence existence, aboriginal people across the country are reclaiming their land and their economies. With the highest birthrate in Canada and a burgeoning demand for jobs, aboriginals recognize the time has come to focus less on past injustices and more on their future prosperity through business development, much of it involving the reclamation of culture and language. Indeed, tourist-friendly regions are developing thriving new, culture-based economies. In this segment of Venturing Forth, we examine how the Osoyoos Band has turned their fortunes around through sound business management. And we find out how changes in attitude can improve the lives of First Nations across the country.

Locations: Osoyoos, BC; Yukon; Alberta.
