CBC Manitoba: Indigenous graduates celebrated at post-secondary powwows in Winnipeg

May 6, 2024 — 

Taylor Galvin had to overcome a lot of obstacles during her six years studying environmental studies at the University of Manitoba, but she finally got to celebrate reaching the end of part of the journey on Saturday — with more than 150 of her fellow Indigenous graduates.

“I feel over the moon. I’ve been a student for long enough, and it’s very exciting to be part of the graduation powwow today,” Galvin told CBC News.

The Anishinaabekwe graduate from Brokenhead Ojibway First Nation is among 478 Indigenous students graduating from U of M programs this term. The university celebrated those grads at its 35th annual graduation powwow on Saturday.
