The Social Economy Centre (OISE/UT) Lunchbox Speakers' Series - Aboriginal Social Economy Issues: March 28th, 2007

An Aboriginal Perspective on the Social Economy

Panel: Alice Corbiere, Rosalind Johnston and Jose A. Reyes
Wednesday, March 28th, 2007, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm.
Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto
252 Bloor Street West,
Toronto, Ontario
Room 12-199

The three panelists leading this discussion are Alice Corbiere, Rosalind Johnston and Jose Reyes of the Community Economic and Social Development (CESD) programme at Algoma University College.~ The panel will suggest that the current definition of the social economy may not be sufficiently inclusive to reflect the holistic worldview of indigenous peoples nor reflect the reality of First Nations governance.~ They will connect examples of First Nations development to international perspectives, and question whether the social economy research can be a tool for challenging the imposition of colonial models on indigenous peoples.
