My impression is that Jim Craven (Omahkohkiaayo i’poyi) has deliverd this lecture several times.  If not, it’s all the more impressive.  He’s a member of the Blackfoot Nation and holds US and Canadian citizenships.  Craven’s earned at least a half dozen undergraduate and graduate degrees in a variety of fields and at the time of this presentation was a Professor of Economics and Chairman of the Business Division at Clark College in Vancouver, Washington.

This video was brought to my attention about a year ago by a fellow UCCS MBA student.  I’ve seen it a few times since then for its breadth, depth and entertainment value.  It’s certainly academic, but connects to the everyday and to common experience frequently enough to guide you through.

If you don’t have the time or patience for this now, bookmark it and come back.  If you do have the time, share your thoughts.  Enjoy!
