20th Annual Pow Wow

February 27, 2020

We deeply regret to inform you Red River College’s 20th Annual Graduation Pow Wow that was to be held on May 8, 2020 will be postponed due to the recent recommendations made by public authorities to increase social distancing to reduce the transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

This event has been a point of pride for RRC for nearly 20 years and has been a tremendous way to honour, celebrate, and make Indigenous culture more accessible for the College community. Although we are saddened by this change, we are hopeful that we will be able to join together to celebrate our Indigenous students and the journey they are on in the near future.

We would like to acknowledge the time and efforts of our Elders, staff and community members who have been putting in great effort to plan this special day.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Rhonda Monkman, Events Coordinator, at

Miigwetch (thank you) in advance for your understanding.
