First Nations Festive Feast Brings YC Together

For over 20 years, Yukon College has celebrated the arrival of the holidays with a First Nations feast and this year will be no exception, with a festive event planned for staff and students.

Before students leave for the holidays, they will have the chance to gather for the feast on December 8th at 12 p.m. in the “Pit.” There will be turkey with all the trimmings, oranges, candy and more. Ben Charlie will provide entertainment with his fiddle and Mr. and Mrs. Claus may also make an appearance.

“This event brings staff and students together and it helps strengthen the relationship between First Nations and non-First Nations people,” says Randall Tetlichi, Cultural Development Facilitator at the College.

 The last day of classes is December 18th and the College will be closed for the holidays December 25th to January 1st.
