Part Two of The Current
First Nations & Philanthropy - Shawn Atleo
We started this segment with a clip from Shawn Atleo, the National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations. Last week, he presented his case to a group he thinks is in a unique position to help transform the lives of native Canadians. Chief Atleo was the closing speaker at the National Conference of the Philanthropic Foundations of Canada and he used the occasion to build stronger ties between philanthropists and First Nations. We heard what some people at the conference thought about his speech.
We reached the National Chief in Winnipeg.
