This episode of Pod Bless Canada continues our ongoing series that examines Indigenous prosperity at the crossroads. Particularly, MLI is seeking to amplify the voices of Indigenous leaders and entrepreneurs who are on the frontline of economic reconciliation, often by way of securing meaningful partnerships for their communities in the natural resource economy.
To that end, MLI Munk Senior Fellow Ken Coates spoke with Karen Ogen-Toews, the CEO of the First Nations LNG Alliance. Previously, she served as elected Chief of the Wet’suwet’en First Nation for six years, and is currently an elected council member for that nation.
Coates and Ogen-Toews discuss the issues at play within First Nations as often divided communities seek to responsibly engage in the energy economy.
