The community is invited to a book launch event and a special celebration of Indigenous Peoples’ Day on Monday, October 12, when author Alyssa London will be joined by illustrator Monica Ricker-Bolter, Northwest formline artist Preston Singletary, and Debra Yepa-Pappan, Community Engagement Coordinator at Field Museum to discuss her recently published children’s book: “The Journey of the Freckled Indian: A Tlingit Culture Story.”
Among Northwest Coast tribes, a potlatch is a coming together in ceremony, celebration, sharing, and giving. Potlatch Fund honors these traditional values and is dedicated to inspiring the Native tradition of giving by expanding philanthropy within Tribal Nations and communities in the Northwest. The Potlatch Fund’s Annual Gala is our major fundraising event and brings together people from many different tribes, organizations, corporations, and communities.
All Proceeds from the Silent Auction will help support the Native Arts Grant Cycles. Check back in September for more info.
