We'd like you to meet Celeste Whitewolf, a Potlatch Fund grant recipient. Potlatch Fund has supported Celeste in her journey to preserve and renew the traditional Native art of weaving through her project “Núun ken’ witnéewit – Our Way of Weaving. “I love that Potlatch Fund opened doors for us, and now those doors are wide open,” Celeste says. “All we have to do is find a way to walk through those new doors.” Registration to the virtual event is free: https://bit.ly/355lxia The 18th Annual Gala is Nov. 7 at 5PM PST. #PF2020Gala #RezCarpet
