Join us in celebrating International Day of Indigenous Peoples! We have assembled a panel of Indigenous entrepreneurs and thought leaders to share their stories and discuss how we can create a better world through Indigenous entrepreneurship.

It’s a United Nations-sponsored holiday on August 9 that commemorates the cultural and historic significance of indigenous peoples around the world.

This day is a chance for you to reflect on how you can help to dismantle structures that are built on false beliefs (decolonisation).

Can’t leave the house (COVID-19 or another pandemic) or live out bush, no worries! The team at Barayamal keeps up with the latest innovations and trends that work for the community.

Topics covered

Indigenous vs Western entrepreneurship

Access to Capital

Government Policies & Support

Sustainability & Creating a Better World
