13. Aboriginal International: Local Roots, Global Reach

Country Available: Canada, USA

The international marketplace is not an easy place to make a mark. Yet aboriginal entrepreneurs are doing just that. After all, they have a long history of international trade on which to draw. This episode of Venturing Forth looks at a piece of this history, starting with the creation of aboriginal currency and the marketing of Dentalium shells found off the west coast of Vancouver Island. Dr Phil Nuytten, a Metis businessman, sub-sea engineer, diver, marine archeologist, author, carver and native advocate, has done extensive research on the subject. He also knows well today's global markets. His companies, Nuytco Research and Can-Dive Construction, have been marketing internationally for more than 30 years. Through Nuytten's insights and others, Venturing Forth examines the past, present and future of aboriginal international business and trade.
