This report is a summary of a gathering that took place in Winnipeg, Manitoba on June 10 & 11, 2008. The gathering marked the first time philanthropic foundations have assembled together with the aim to better understand Aboriginal peoples, communities, and issues in Canada. This event was the start of a journey toward greater understanding and improving effectiveness in Aboriginal-focused philanthropy, and a starting point to network and collaborate around Aboriginal Peoples' ideas and initiatives over the long term.
