Comparing capitalism with the “gifting” system of First Nations
Meeting Date is Tuesday, September 13th, 2022
Location: Zoom meeting

Our meeting will include a presentation on comparing the capitalist system we live in, with the “gifting” system of First Nations where even “money” may not exist. The latter system may have been successful for 10,000 years, and our own for only a few thousand. Capitalism is an infant in age and some feel, pathological in intent.

Our presenter David McLaren has been a past NDP candidate for the GBOS riding and an award-winning communicator who’s been working hard to tackle income inequality and environmental threats in our community. In addition to coordinating communications for Nawash and Saugeen, he has been an environmental consultant both for the Assembly of First Nations and the Chiefs of Ontario. David has been heavily influenced by his wife Lenore Keeshig-Tobias. Lenore is an Anishinabe storyteller, poet, scholar, and journalist and a major advocate for Indigenous writers in Canada. She is a member of the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation.
