The Esquao Awards honour Aboriginal Women who are the strength of our community and play an unsung role in our society.Each year IAAW honours 20 Alberta Aboriginal Women at the Esquao Awards. These awards are given in recognition of Aboriginal Women’s achievements by their own communities, have made incalculable contributions to better understanding and appreciation on the part of elected officials (local, provincial and federal) and influential decision makers in government, industry, and business.
The involvement of prominent individuals in handing out the awards have opened valuable channels of communication and given stature to the achievements of the Esquao recipients. It has served as living proof that the work of the Institute for the Advancement of Aboriginal Women is not about confrontation, competition, or one-upmanship; but about recognizing and uplifting Aboriginal Women and helping them take their rightful place in Canadian society.
