It is becoming clear that sound governance is a prerequisite for rapid improvement in the well being of communities and nations. Moreover, it is our view that sound governance is a prerequisite for improving opportunities for wealth creation among Indigenous communities and organizations, and that wealth creation is both a key support to self-determination and a facilitator of economic success for all parties. Many Indigenous groups have already, or are currently, engaged in strengthening and maintaining their own governance structures to facilitate wealth generation.
