Since 1995, IAAW has coordinated a community recognition ceremony to honour the strength, resilience and beauty of First Nation, Metis and Inuit women in Alberta.
- Community nominates the women with three letters of support; no jury.
- Over 480 adult women from over 90 towns/cities have received Esquao Awards. Excellent networking and opportunity to thank women who may not receive another award.
- IAAW continues to promote and connect recipients to leadership opportunities.
