A MEMORABLE OCCASION – There were 122 Indigenous graduates this year. In a completely closed ceremony, the graduates received their accolades last Friday at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre. Grads are seen here after the ceremony. The livestreamed event still attracted friends and family members who observed from outside the fence at the centre on their phones. Saturday saw the Klondike Cruisers organize a graduation parade around Whitehorse.
