Graduation Powwow 2016

June 20, 2016

​​​​​On June ​13, 2016, the Louis Riel School Division hosted our first Graduation Powwow at Dakota Collegiate. ​

Over 600 members of the LRSD community were in attendance to celebrate the 33 graduates representing high schools from all over the Division. The celebrations were brought to life by 115 dancers, including LRSD students and Powwow dancers from across the Province, alongside​ ​10 drum groups who shared music and passion in honour of the graduates. 

The evening was hosted by emcee Coco Ray Stevenson, ​prominent Indigenous ​performer and musician. Wayne Ruby acted as the Arena Director, keeping spirits and dancing direction lively. Walking Wolf Singers lead performances as the Host Drum. 

Food was provided by the Louis Riel Arts and Technology Centre (ATC) Culinary Arts students, who prepared​ are meal of stew, bannock and wild blueberry crumble. ATC students in Broadcast Media also provided video streaming, bringing the Powwow live into the homes of community members all around LRSD. 

​The Hastings School Powwow Club had 18 students participate as dancers in the Powwow​! These students were also honoured during the evening by being welcomed into the Powwow circle.

Thank you to all the staff, students, attendees and everyone involved in the Powwow for your hard work in helping put together an amazing evening of celebration.
