30th Annual Regional Aboriginal Recognition Awards

Description: The 30th Annual Regional Aboriginal Recognition Awards (RARA) are a tradition in this community, recognizing Aboriginal individuals who have made positive contributions to the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. Those in the communities of Fort McMurray, Fort Chipewyan, Anzac, Janvier, Fort McKay, Conklin and Gregoire Lake, are acknowledged during the awards ceremony for making a positive difference within the region. First established in the fall of 1988, the RARA Vision Statement is “To bestow appreciation for the achievement of Aboriginal People in, or from, this region by recognizing excellence in specific fields; by doing this in such a way that more and more people and institutions participate in ensuring that the Regional Aboriginal Recognition Awards (R.A.R.A.) make a positive impact on the lives of all people.” Adrian LaChance was the evenings’ Keynote Speaker that gave an inspirational speech as well as showcased a traditional dance for all who attended. It was a wonderful night to see many individuals receive recognition for their work.
