Ep. 20 – The Concept of “Indigenomics” with Ken Coates and Carol Anne Hilton
January 17, 2019
In this episode of Pod Bless Canada, Ken Coates is joined by Carol Anne Hilton to further an enduring dialogue at MLI around Indigenous economic development and opportunity.
Their conversation explores how the last 20 years of Indigenous legal and economic progress have created a platform for collaborative, nation-to-nation economic growth. Hilton explains the concept of Indigenomics, that is, ‘economics from an Indigenous worldview’, and highlights its importance when it comes to reaching the ambitious target of $100 billion generated directly through Indigenous commercial activity.
Carol Anne Hilton is the Founder and CEO of The Indigenomics Institute where she has made a name as one of Canada’s most thoughtful speakers on Indigenous economic development. She currently serves as a Senior Advisor on both the Canadian Federal Economic Growth Council and the BC Economic Task Force. She holds an MBA from the University of Hertfordshire.
