RLI Congratulates the 2022 Esquao Awards Recipients
Rupertsland Institute (RLI) congratulates all of the 2022 Esquao Awards recipients, including RLI’s Board of Governor, Dr. Florence Glanfield.
The Esquao Awards are the largest gathering to honour Aboriginal Women in Canada. It is unique because the community nominates the women, and the Institute for the Advancement of Aboriginal Women (IAAW) coordinates the ceremony to honour them. The Esquao Awards highlight the significant role Aboriginal women hold in their home, in the healing and development of their city/town/hamlet/reserve/settlement and in the building of Alberta. To date 493 women have received Esquao Awards, from over 90 communities. The Awards recognize Indigenous professionals and youth who demonstrate outstanding career achievement on a national level in a variety of fields.
