Blanketing Ceremony 2022

Congratulations to our 2022 Native American students!

Blanketing is accorded special significance in Native American society. A blanketing ceremony shows respect for those who have made an important contribution to our community in some way, and are given as gifts at graduations, at Pow wows, as thank you gifts, and in commemoration of births and deaths. The respected guest is draped with special blankets in front of witnesses, and it is theirs to keep.

Our Native American students selected blankets that had a special significance to them for their graduation.
