About Us

The First Nations Education Administrators Association (FNEAA) is a Gathering Place for education administrators, educators, principals, directors of education, Chiefs, teachers, students and learners at all levels. Members gather to connect and network in ways that will help navigate the delivery of education in our nations, regions and country. FNEAA is committed to the values associated in the teachings of our members’ Nations.

The Conference

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, Elders, students, Indigenous Institutes and partners in First Nations education are invited to join us and take part in FNEAA’s First Virtual Annual National Gathering.


Conference Theme

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 to share.
