The Honouring Our Future: First Nations Graduation Regalia is a celebration of the graduation regalia worn by First Nations students from past years. The exhibit is on display at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre until April 30, 2021, then will travel to the communities.
The inspiration behind this exhibit is to give more access to our communities to experience the mesmerizing display of brilliant art that is created each year by First Nations families for this ceremony.
So much time, effort, and love is poured into every single vest, dress, headband, octopus bag etc., but the results are only on display for one day. This exhibit gives much needed visibility to this brilliant art and holds up the graduates and their families.
Created in partnership between the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre, Teslin Tlingit Heritage Centre and the Yukon Arts Centre with support from Government of Yukon and Lotteries Yukon.
