The Native Women’s Association of the NWT (NWA NWT) is dedicated to achieving the full and equitable participation of Aboriginal women in all aspects of community and territorial life. A fundamental belief of the Association is that Aboriginal women must have the tools and support to fully and equitably participate in society. Education, training and personal/professional support and skills are some of these tools. The mission statement of the NWA NWT was shaped by this belief.
“To provide training and educational programs for native women in the Western Arctic,
so they can function more effectively in areas that affect our lives economically, socially,
educationally, emotionally, culturally and politically.”
