Coordination with Indigeneous Leaders | Consultation for large construction project on Native Land
Curt Thomas and Dennis Thomas grew up together on the Tsleil Waututh Nation reserve in North Vancouver. There, they absorbed the stories and teachings from their Elders and family. They grew up witnessing the new age of economic independence that their Nation was striving to achieve. Their Nation fought against the behemoth companies prospering on the extraction and movement of fossil fuels. Through these experiences, they have developed a unique vision of how an Indigenous company can thrive from an economic and humanistic perspective in this 21st Century.
