Keywords:Indigenous Economy, Traditional Economy, Blended Economy, Pimachesowin, Pimacihowin
This article discusses the resilience of the northern traditional economy. In northern Saskatchewan mitho-pimachesowin speaks to the freedom and capacity to make a good living. For northern Indigenous People, this includes participation in the traditional economy that reflects their culture, identity, and way of life. Most still blend their land-based livelihood activities (harvesting, trapping, commercial fishing) and other forms of revenue income to support their families and communities. This blended approach is an example of sustainable development that works, and it should be supported by all levels of government with strategic approaches and investments. This article is a chapter in the open textbook Indigenous Self-Determination through Mitho Pimachesowin (Ability to Make a Good Living), developed for the University of Saskatchewan course Indigenous Studies 410/810 and hosted by the Northern Review.
