Aboriginal Participation in the Canadian Economy

Lecture in English

Clarence Louie believes that nothing but socioeconomic development makes a community strong and independent. He defends this value vigorously, and sees it gaining success in First Nation communities. Chief Louie has notably encouraged the Osoyoos band to respect the culture of their ancestors in their work, and to use the Okanagan language and culture in business. Under his leadership, the Osoyoos band has become a diversified business operation, and owns nine companies providing hundreds of jobs. The band’s Nk’Mip cellars, and their wine, are a growing success.

Chief Louie studied at the First Nations University of Canada in Regina and at the University of Lethbridge in Native American Studies.  He has received a number of distinctions for his exemplary engagement in community development.  Chief Louie is a passionate, dynamic and inspiring speaker!

Clarence Louie, Chief of the Osoyoos Indian Band and President of the National Aboriginal Economic Development Board
