The education of our children is very important to us. Two of our favourite annual celebrations are the graduation ceremonies for the pre-school children of the Aboriginal Head Start program and for our high school graduates. The students wear traditional clothing to celebrate our heritage and the entire community attends the ceremony.
For the last four decades, high school graduates from all over the Yukon have attended the Yukon First Nations graduation ceremony in Whitehorse organized by the Council of Yukon First Nations. In 2015, proud friends and family celebrated the accomplishments of 132 aboriginal graduates from 26 First Nations.
A community ceremony celebrated graduates of both Robert Service School and the Aboriginal Headstart preschool program, 2009.
