First Nations graduation ceremony


All Day


Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre


This year’s Yukon First Nation Graduation ceremony will be held at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre. The actual ceremony will be outdoors, PLEASE DRESS for the weather.

All graduates need to be at the Cultural Centre by 12:30 p.m. on Friday, June 2, 2017 and to be dressed in their traditional regalia.

There will be a group photo taken at 1 p.m. sharp outside by the River if you are late; you are not in the photo.

Each graduate will receive 3 free tickets – one for themselves and two to give away.

Grads will be able to purchase additional tickets in late May; you will be advised of the date and price in early spring. The number available will depend on how many confirmed graduates we have. Grad Coordinators will attend to each of the 4 High Schools in Whitehorse to sell the tickets; community graduate tickets will be held and graduates can arrange to pick them up until 1 p.m. on the day of the ceremony.

Please be advised that it is the policy of the Yukon First Nations Graduation Committee that in order for First Nation graduates to participate in the graduation ceremony, a student must be of Aboriginal, Inuit or Metis ancestry. In addition to this, all students must be completing their grade 12 year with an academic grade 12 (Dogwood Diploma), Adult Graduation or Leaving School Certificate.
