Graduates from both the Mountain View School Division and Assiniboine Community College Parkland Campus will be honoured tomorrow during the 12th annual Graduation Pow Wow.

Organizer Wade Houle says registration goes from 9-10 in the morning, with the grand march set to begin at around 10:15.

"Our arena director will get everyone organized and all of our dignitaries and our grads in place.  People usually stand and watch all of that take part as we open the day and the ceremony and the celebration.  And then people sing and dance, and we have dancers coming and drum groups and people watch and observe."

Co-organizer Carole Shankaruk says they are also adding a community giveaway to this year's festivities.

"Alongside of honouring all of our grads, we are also going to honour our elder Bev Harvey, who has passed to the spirit world.  So we are going to have the youth giveaway to the whole community, and we have invited her family and they will be there as well." 

Shankaruk says indigenous and non-indigenous graduates will be celebrated at this event, 

There is no cost to attend the event.

It will take place outdoors on the Dauphin Rec Services fairgrounds, with a backup plan to hold it inside Rotary Arena if the weather does not cooperate.
