On Saturday, July 1, 2017 at 7pm, Global TV and APTN aired the 2017 Indspire Awards from Ottawa. Thirteen First Nation, Inuit, and Métis individuals from across the country were honoured at this year’s Indspire Awards ceremony. The ceremony, hosted by multi-award nominated actress and singer/songwriter, Cheri Maracle and well-known TV personality, Kyle Nobess, featured Indigenous talent from across the country, including a special guest performance by musical icon Buffy Sainte-Marie.
The Indspire Awards were established in 1993 in conjunction with the United Nations’ International Decade of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, and after 24 years, we have honoured 337 outstanding First Nations, Inuit, and Métis individuals. These positive role models demonstrate to Indigenous youth that they can achieve their dreams too. In March 23, 2018, join us in Winnipeg to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Indspire Awards!
Nominations Deadline: EXTENDED to August 4, 2017 at 11:59pm PT
