Pictured above, Charles Hays student Lucas Statham shows Martin Aboriginal Education Initiative program directors Carlana Lindeman and Pat Rose his idea for a small business he has created in his Aboriginal Entrepreneurship class.

Lucas’s idea is to make bracelets out of parachute cord that men and women can wear and undo to create 10 feet of rope if needed. The bracelets can also be made with fishing line and a small hook woven in.

Charles Hays was the pilot school in Western Canada for the course five years ago and it is now offered in two other BC schools and several in other Provinces throughout the country.  Lindeman and Rose said they were very happy with how the course has continued to grow at Charles Hays and at how creative and realistic all of the students’ small business ideas were.   The team purchased Luca’s prototype to take back to former Prime Minister Paul Martin, creator and sponsor of the program.
