Native Action Network is hosting its 16th Annual Native Women’s Leadership Forum! During this day and a half conference, women of all ages will gather together for fellowship, learning, and sharing of life experiences through general assembly sessions, workshops, and our Enduring Spirit Honoring Luncheon. The Enduring Spirit Award recognizes the lifetime achievements of Native women who through their commitment of time, energy, and volunteerism contribute to healthy communities. The issues they champion are varied and include: environment, education, youth and family, holistic health (mind, body, spirit), continuation and retention of culture, preservation of treaty rights, sacred sites, and economic empowerment to name a few.
Nominations for the 2020 Enduring Spirit Awards are now being accepted. If you know an auntie, a mother, a grandmother, sister, or a dear friend who has devoted her life to strengthening Native communities, we invite you to submit a nomination by March 31! If selected, you and your honoree will share a complimentary hotel room at the Tulalip Resort Casino & Spa and can attend the Leadership Forum at no charge. In addition, the honoree can invite two guests to join her for the luncheon and presentation of awards.
▪ Nominations from out of state are considered but are unlikely to receive awards unless the nominee and nominator can fund their own travel to the conference.
▪ We use an inclusive definition of “woman” and “female” and we welcome trans women, genderqueer women, and non-binary people who are significantly female-identified.
▪ Please note, the primary nomination should come from community members rather than family.
▪ We receive many more nominations than we can award. Selected honorees will be notified in April.
