The First Nations Education Administrators Association invites you to the virtual tradeshow for the First Virtual National Gathering October 27-28, 2021. This is an opportunity for you to reach First Nations schools and communities who invest heavily in education services, supplies programs, etc. across Canada.

The National Gathering provides an opportunity to network, share education best practices, and give voice to invaluable insights and perspectives regarding the Champions of Change and Honouring Resiliency. First Nations Directors of Education, principals, teachers, educators, Indigenous Institutes and partners in First Nations education are invited to join us and take part in FNEAA’s First Virtual Annual National Gathering!

This Gathering follows in the tradition of the Assembly of First Nations previous Nations Education Gatherings. The First Nations Education Administrators Association (FNEAA) is a new national organization incorporated on February 6, 2019.  The Assembly of First Nations (AFN) through the Chiefs Committee on Education, the National Indian Education Council and Education Sector staff hosted many dialogue sessions with education administrators across the country to determine the need for and goals of the Association. In 2017, AFN Resolution 15/2017 was passed by the Chiefs in Assembly to support the creation of a national association for directors of education.

The theme Champions of Change; Honouring Resiliency honour First Nations’ high-quality cultural and language based Education. First Nations education nurtures our children’s mind, body, spirit and emotions so that their learning spirit is ignited to strengthen their resiliency to change the world. By embracing our voice through holistic learning, it is anticipated that the National Gathering will inspire and provide renewal to participants. First Nations have responded to the pandemic with resiliency and adaption with exciting lessons learned and best practices.
