In early March, a group of students from across Frontier School Division had the opportunity to attend the Soaring: Indigenous Youth Empowerment Gathering in Ottawa hosted by Indspire. Our youth attended the Indspire Awards, along with a career workshop about post-secondary education opportunities.
Students met notable speakers and Indigenous performers who conveyed inspiration and motivational messages. It was an experience that they will never forget!
The Indspire Awards represents a high honour bestowed upon Indigenous Canadians. Over 26 years, the Indspire Awards have honoured 362 First Nations, Inuit and Métis individuals who demonstrat 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.
