How an Anishinaabe entrepreneur is thriving

Also on the show this week — how an Anishinaabe business owner is using an interest-free loan to make steroid-free cream to treat eczema.

Patrice Mousseau received the loan for her company Satya Organic Skin Care from SHEeo, a venture capital group that supports women entrepreneurs.

She's one of five women with successful business plans who were chosen to make their dreams become a reality. ​

Gearing up for the games

Plus in less than two months, a spectacular display of culture and sport will get underway in Toronto.

More than 5,000 athletes from across Turtle Island will gather as one united nation — to take part in the North American Indigenous Games. We hear from lacrosse player Cody Jamieson.
