Indigenous Leaders and Their Role in Successful Partnerships
Ethel-Blondin Andrew has many years’ experience as an Indigenous leader living in Canada’s Northwest Territories. Active in politics for most of her life, she gives perspectives about leadership and how this role has changed and evolved. She has some insightful views on why some partnerships succeed and others don’t. What role do Indigenous leaders play to ensure successful partnerships?
Ethel-Blondin Andrew has been described as a trailblazer and a leader. In 1993, she was re-elected and then appointed Secretary of State for Training and Youth, making her the first Indigenous woman to become a member of the Privy Council and Cabinet. Ethel is currently the Chairperson of the Sahtu Secretariat Board of Directors, established in 1994 following the enactment of the Sahtu Dene and Metis Land Claims Settlement Act. Sahtu is a region in Canada’s Northwest Territories.
