Semelshun Aboriginal Graduation Recognition Ceremony

Monday, December 12
11 am - 12:30 pm

Semélshun is the Aboriginal Graduation Recognition Ceremony for Indigenous graduates who have/ are completing their program. It is a semi-annual event where we invite Indigenous graduates to cross the stage while the Elders drum them in, and their families and friends are there to witness and celebrate. Semélshun means “paving the way”, “clearing a path” in Hul'q'umi'num'.
