Would Indians Make Better Businesses?

Back in March, Native Women in the Arts and the Centre for Indigenous Sovereignty held a symposium on the "insight and vision on the subject of cultural approaches to management based on fundamental Indigenous principles and models of leadership". They said that this symposium would "look at Indigenous cultural approaches to management, community inter-relationships, decision-making, capacity-building, and nurturing healthy arts and cultural leaders and organizations".

How interesting!

My curiosity is most piqued by the idea that there are inherent differences between indigenous approaches to management and leadership and non-indigenous approaches. What would those differences look like? How would they play out? Could you teach them in business/ public administration school? But most of all, would they be successful ? How would you know?
