Dennis Easter, from Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia, receives a traditional cedar headband from Amy Marie George, daughter of the late Chief Dan George, during a ceremony honouring six SFU First Nations graduates on June 6. Easter earned a bachelor of education. The headbands represent a coming of age and are given at various occasions. The ceremony, an annual event at SFU, was established to honour First Nations students while giving the community and family members an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of graduates.
