Leadership development of Canadian aboriginal leaders

It began as a notion a few months ago: having Canadian Christian business leaders connect with Christian aboriginal leaders in Canada's north.

The core question, as in all mission, is how far one goes in cultural contextualization. Crossing the large cultural gaps naturally raise concerns about "syncretism", that...
