Winnipeg; Yellowquill College, a Winnipeg based post-secondary institution specializing in Aboriginal and First Nations education, is celebrating its 25th year with an Anniversary Gala on October 2nd, in Winnipeg Manitoba. The Yellowquill College Board of Directors welcomes all who are interested to join the celebrations.Founded in 1984 by the Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council, Yellowquill College was Manitoba’s first post-secondary institution focusing on the educational needs of Aboriginal and First Nations people. The Dakota Ojibway Tribal Council’s vision was to create a school that is respectful of Aboriginal culture, and founded on traditional First Nation values such as honesty, humility, truth, bravery and wisdom.
“Our 25th year gives us a chance to reflect on how much we have accomplished over the years, and the positive impact we’ve had among First Nations peoples,” said Doreen Beauchamp, Director of Yellowquill College. “We have had more than 1,000 students graduate our college, many returning to their home communities to seek out careers and leadership roles.”
The 25th Anniversary Gala will host a dinner and social evening on Friday, October 2, 2009.
