Ganohonyohk (Giving Thanks): Indigenous Prosperity
This study contributed to a conceptual shift from “poverty reduction” to “prosperity” in the context of urban Indigenous communities.
Ganohonyohk asks Indigenous communities what “prosperity” means to them.
Friendship Centre communities tell us that being prosperous isn’t only about having food, water, shelter or money. To be prosperous, they say, people need nutritious food, clean water, a safe place to live and the means to give generously and protect one another.
