Article describes how economic participation must be on their own terms and for their own purposes. Also, traditional lands, history, culture and values all play a critical role in economic development. In order to attempt to compete in the global economy on their own terms, Indigenous people are using all types of partnerships, both among themselves and with non-Indigenous enterprises. A case study of the Lac La Ronge Indian Band is used as they are recognized as one of the leaders in economic development in Canada. Article looks at the Aboriginal approach mentioned above and as to whether or not it is being implemented effectively and, if so, what are the critical success factors. Venture creation, venture durability and venture adaptability are all seen as important.
