The Juneau campus Commencement 2016 procession was led by a large local group of Tlingit dancers and drummers. Aak’w Kwaan elders Rosa Miller and Frances Houston gave a traditional Tlingit welcome. “We were honored to start a proud new tradition—having the Mount Juneau Tlingit Dancers lead our procession and a traditional welcome by Elders of the Aak’w Kwaan people, “ said Chancellor Rick Caulfield. “The spirited singing and dancing was a fitting way to honor both the accomplishments of all our graduates and the rich indigenous cultures of Southeast Alaska.”
