"Money is symbolic to power and being in control. You can start being in control of your money from the group up by orchestrating discipline."

"There is no Cree word for tax, but when you start your Indigenous business it's a reality. Get the facts, keep your records and connect with your brothers and sisters when you need help."

"Indigenous people are the original entrepreneurs of this land and we knew when and where to harvest, we practiced sustainability and we had well established trading routes amongst the Nations. The land and water provided a life of abundance for all our people. Entrepreneurship is not new to us, we are experiencing a reclaiming of this space"
