The National Aboriginal Achievement Awards recognize Aboriginal professionals who demonstrate outstanding career achievement in diverseoccupations, building self esteem and pride as well as providing valuable role models for Aboriginal youth. Supported by the public and private sectors, this Aboriginal initiative represents the highest honour the community bestows upon its own achievers.
Each year 14 recipients are selected by a national jury for their outstanding accomplishments in various disciplines, as well as specific recognition to one outstanding youth and a lifetime achiever. The 14 recipients are then honoured at a nationally televised gala awards ceremony.
