Potlatch Fund Invites You!

The Potlatch Board and Staff is excited to host the Potlatch Fund Plateau Reception on June 10, 2023 at Tamástslikt Cultural Institute in Pendleton, Oregon on the Umatilla Indian Reservation. We cannot wait to celebrate with our relatives on the Eastern Side of the Cascade Mountains!

We will have a special showing of According to Coyote, an immersive hour of creative storytelling that teaches so many lessons, not only from the story itself but also from the deep familial roots of its creators. Spokane Ensemble Theatre is presenting According to Coyote by John Kauffman, in partnership with Red Eagle Soaring. This production, featuring Coyote, the legendary hero of American Indian mythology, is an encounter with the richness and vitality of Native American culture using age-old traditions of music, dance, and theatre. Directed by the playwright’s niece, Josephine Keefe, and performed by Nez Perce actor, Kellen Trenal, this one-man show is a testament to storytelling and family history.


Potlatch Fund is a Native lead nonprofit serving Native communities in OR, ID, WA and MT. We are happy to be out in community again and seek to connect, leaving our home offices in Seattle, WA.

Our event in the Umatilla homelands is open to all and we look forward to a night of food and story with funders, culture keepers, grantees and Native artists. If you are interested in being a vendor, please contact Rebecca Miles at rebecca@nullpotlatchfund.org

We hope you can join us!
