The Indigenous Entrepreneur Awards presented by Pow Wow Pitch recognize and celebrate excellence and outstanding impact in Indigenous entrepreneurship.

Join us for the 2022 Indigenous Entrepreneur Awards on November 3rd at 6 PM ET as we celebrate Indigenous entrepreneurs and Indigenous-owned businesses across Turtle Island for their entrepreneurial perseverance, growth, impact and example as true Indigenous icons of our generation.

Hosted by Pow Wow Pitch Founder Sunshine Tenasco and featuring a special performance by Alecia Kayley of 'Rise Up' to honour all nominees and applicants, the Digital Gala features eight heartfelt presentations of the 2022 Indigenous Entrepreneur Awards.


Winners will receive a unique sterling silver pin hand-crafted by Jesse Brant, Co-Founder of Sapling and Flint and a plaque encased with a limited edition signed print of 'Red Rising,' a beautiful art piece created by award-winning Indigenous artist Patrick Hunter.
