One of our main goals is to develop a sustainable, community-controlled economy. We intend to successfully combine education, training and work opportunities for members (i.e. the ability to learn about business awareness, economic development and entrepreneurship) with sustainable business ventures and practices. A key component of our success in business revolves around maintaining a dedicated Economic Development Officer / Corporation Manager.

Our community works hard to find a balance between new, modern business opportunities while still respecting our traditional lifestyle, skills and knowledge.
