01. Aboriginal Economies: History of Aboriginal Economy in Canada (Profile: Tri-Corp)

Country Available: Canada, USA

The premiere episode of Venturing Forth presents a stark contrast. The devastating consequences caused by the loss of Aboriginal economies - the outcome of imposed dependency - is compared with the benefits of becoming independent through pursuing one's own business. Meet natives of Prince Rupert, British Columbia whose company assists Aboriginal people in getting a business off the ground, and learn about some positive initiatives that are changing and influencing Aboriginal economies across the country.
