A feast, prizes and traditional dancing were all be part of Beaver Brae's annual spring powwow yesterday.
Sheena Kiviston, the Grade 7 and 8 Indigenous language teacher and coordinator of the powwow, says that the event was to celebrate the students.
“We have a very large number of Indigenous graduates this year. So, we're bringing everyone together to celebrate our community, and all of the communities, that bring their children to our school,” she said.
Both of the head dancers, who performed at the powwow, were Beaver Brae graduates. In all, 57 out of the 102 graduates this year at Beaver Brae are Indigenous.
