It was day one of the First Nation Education Conference in Whitehorse when Melanie Bennett started to relax and enjoy herself.
Bennett is executive director of the Yukon First Nation Education Directorate (YFNED), which organized the conference. The event is in its fourth year, but she still gets nervous before it all comes together.
“We’ve been working on this for a year,” Bennett said. “And you go, ‘OK, my fingers are crossed, everything is gonna go well.’ And so far, so good.”
Almost 400 people registered for the conference, which kicked off Wednesday at the Kwanlin Dün Cultural Centre. 200 are attending in person, with the remainder tuning in via Zoom.
