This paper applies the economic concept of creative destruction to the renewal and development of Indigenous economies in the Canadian context. It provides historical context for the importance of creative destruction processes, before outlining in detail how the destruction of First Nation economies by Canada, and losses of jurisdiction, have prevented creative destruction from occurring effectively in regard to governing institutions on First Nation lands. The paper continues to present a detailed model for a sustainable innovation economy and greater creative destruction within the public sector, especially in regards to Indigenous economic development in Canada. This paper was completed for the Tulo Centre by our Director, Andre Le Dressay.
