This event is on Zoom and the Zoom link will be sent out prior to the event.
We invite our community to Native Professionals Night – Healing With Our Elders with Glen and Yvette Pinkham.
As the one-year anniversary of the start of the COVID-19 pandemic comes into view, Potlatch Fund presents a community event for Native professionals to come together in a healing way. With COVID-19 creating so many barriers to coming together, we recognize the need to visit with elders and each other in a cultural and spiritual way. Join us for this hour and a half of storytelling and wisdom from Elders Glen and Yvette Pinkham.

We are kicking off our Potlatch Fund’s One Fire Storytellers Series by bringing back Native Professionals Night. Started by the Native Youth And Family Center, Native Professionals Night has been an adopted program of Potlatch Fund for the past several years.
