During this colourful evening, participants were treated to the inspiring verses of Innu poet Maya Cousineau Mollen, whose performance was as brilliant as that of dancer Don Barnaby, accompanied by the powerful singing and traditional drums of the Buffalo Hat Singers.
Launched in November 2021, on the margins of the Great Economic Circle of Indigenous Peoples and Quebec, the First Nations Executive Education aims to train more than 1,000 First Nations leaders through short university certifications within 5 years. So far, this objective is well on its way to success!
This high-level school, propelled by Executive Education HEC Montréal, was thought-up and built from the ground up to be a school for and by First Nations, notably under the leadership of Manon Jeannotte, Director of FNEE and Ken Rock, Director of the FNEE’s Entrepreneurial Initiatives. Each FNEE training session is delivered by qualified Indigenous and non-Indigenous co-trainers whose diversity is its strength.
FNEE would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all the people who made this adventure possible!
