Indigenous high school students were treated to special dance performances when they were welcomed to Kwantlen Polytechnic University at its annual Open Doors, Open Minds event.
The Vancouver-based Métis dance group V’ni Dansi and internationally renowned dance group the Git Hayetsk Dancers performed traditional dances and songs for students from all over the Lower Mainland.
The 2019 event was the third and largest KPU has held, with more than 170 students registering. In addition to the performances, the high school students met KPU students and faculty members, attended mock classes and learned about the programs and services offered at KPU.
“We hope to inspire the students about their future and give them a chance to see what KPU has to offer,” says Dr. Steve Cardwell, associate vice-president, academic at KPU.
