Social Entrepreneurs In Indigenous Communities
Fri, March 27, 2009; 10:45 - 12:15
This session will discuss different traditions of philanthropy and social entrepreneurship from the perspectives of three leaders from the ‘First Peoples’. It will explore the particular cultural forms which manifest altruistic orientations in an indigenous thought system. Presentations by ‘Chiefs’ from Canada, New Zealand and Latin America – on the power of indigenous thought systems to revitalise their own communities – will be followed by facilitated discussion.
