From Feb. 27 to March 3, the University of Saskatchewan hosted Aboriginal Achievement Week, a time to celebrate the scholarship and leadership of Indigenous peoples. The week began with a pipe ceremony and finished with the ITEP Round Dance, and in between there were artistic performances, speakers’ panels and lectures.

One of the highlights of the week was the Aboriginal Achievement Student Awards Ceremony, a time when 48 Aboriginal students were honoured for their academic, leadership and community outreach accomplishments.
