The Aboriginal Education Sui Generis Foundation was established to promote the idea of Aboriginal education as sui generis or “a thing of its own kind.” This type of education is the realization that myths, rituals, visions, art, and learning of the art of relationships facilitate the wellness and wholeness of individuals, families, and communities.
The foundation is a registered charity with the Canada Revenue Agency. #813955499RR0001

Sharon Ouellette Scholarship
Artist Noel Wuttunee Woman Warrior
This is a scholarship that will be offered to a post-secondary student in honour of Sharon Ouellette. The prize is $400.
Sharon was a hard working professional dancer and felt that successful effort should always be rewarded. She was a single mother of two who attempted to attend university, but was unsuccessful due to financial constraints that forced her to miss school to work and look after her children. She always regretted not finishing university, but she felt if she could have just had a bit of help her life might have been very different. She always believed in the value of education to better one's life, but became stuck in a life of an older dancer past her prime. She never gave up and held hope her children would succeed where she did not.
