Celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2018, the Indspire Awards represents the highest honour the Indigenous community bestows upon its own people. After 25 years, the Indspire Awards have honoured 350 First Nations, Inuit, and Métis individuals who demonstrate outstanding achievement. The show is a nationally broadcast celebration of culture showcasing the diversity of Indigenous peoples in Canada including performances by Canada’s biggest names in Indigenous entertainment.
Each year, with the help of our partners, Indspire also brings hundreds of Indigenous youth to the Indspire Awards. These students experience first-hand the celebration of culture and achievement and leave feeling a sense of pride for their community and excitement for their own futures. Indspire also develops lesson plans to be used in conjunction with the show to expand the reach of the Indspire Awards and ensure that Indigenous youth across the country learn about these incredible role models.
