Free Press: Investment group eyes rebirth
June 17, 2016 —
As the Winnipeg Free Press reports:
Wanda Wuttunee, a professor of native studies at the University of Manitoba and the former director of the aboriginal business education program at the Asper School of Business, said the new approach may better suit the needs of Manitoba First Nations.
But Wuttunee says the new Tribal Councils Investment Group does not seem to be as exciting, or innovative or potentially groundbreaking as the original one was.
“It’s not as sexy,” she said. “(The group) was cool because it was unique. There wasn’t anybody else doing it like that. I’m not talking about all the bad stuff, but the model, the idea of what it was supposed to do.”
