Hosted by Sheila North
Join Carol Anne Hilton as she discusses her book Indigenomics: Taking a Seat at the Economic Table (New Society Publishers).
Indigenous peoples are taking a seat at the economic table of this country. It is time to acknowledge a past based on Indigenous economic exclusion and build a future based on Indigenous economic inclusion. Indigenomics is modern Indigenous economic design- imagining the possibilities of the emerging 100 billion dollar Indigenous economy.

She is a Hesquiaht woman of Nuu chah nulth descent from the west coast of Vancouver Island. She holds an MBA and comes from 10,000 years of the potlatch tradition. She lives in Victoria, BC.
