The Annual Traditional Graduation Pow Wow will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2023. All Indigenous graduates (First Nations, Métis, Inuit) in 2022-2023 are encouraged to participate, including those graduating in Fall 2023.

A Pow Wow is a celebration and cultural event that brings people and nations together, and it is an opportunity to hear traditional drum songs and see different types of dancing. The day-long celebration includes an opening Pipe Ceremony, presentations to the graduates and a community feast in the afternoon. All activities are free, and everyone is welcome.
