Values-Based and Culture-Centered Indigenous Impact Investing for Seven Generations to come
First, we start by building relationships with Indigenous communities and Indigenous entrepreneurs to drive sustainable change. We seek to address pressing social, economic, and environmental challenges, by supporting Indigenous innovators.
We’ve been around investors for decades. We know what a business needs to be investment-ready. As such, we customize our offerings to empower Indigenous entrepreneurs with the skills, knowledge, and tools to reach their goals.
As an Indigenous intermediary, we honour the Seven Sacred Teachings and operate from an Indigenous worldview. We follow traditional Indigenous protocols, work for the well-being of people and the planet, and acknowledge our responsibility to the next Seven Generations and weave that into our investment process.
The way we work is determined by the values laid out by the Seven Sacred Teachings. These teachings guide us toward mino-bimaadiziwin, which roughly means "to live a good life". These seven teachings lay the framework for not only how we invest but also how we live.
to know love is to know peace.
to honour all of the creation is to have respect.
bravery is to face the foe with integrity.
honesty also means “righteousness”, be honest first with yourself – in word and action.
to cherish knowledge is to know wisdom.
humility is to know yourself as a sacred part of the creation.
truth is to know all of these things.
