Intertribal Elders Gathering

Sharing Our Traditions - Elders' Honoring Ceremony  

In keeping with the spirit of Thanksgiving and National American Indian Heritage Month, the Public is cordially invited to attend the Annual Northwest Intertribal Gathering & Elders Dinner.

The Gathering is a community event that provides us all with an opportunity to honor all Elders and Veterans. The Intertribal Gathering allows non-native people a glimpse at the depth and beauty of Native cultures while providing American Indians a chance to share and embrace their traditions. With November being Native American Heritage Month the event is a way for the community to learn from one another in the spirit of Thanksgiving. 

Elders are served a free traditional dinner beginning at noon followed by an Elders’ Gifting Ceremony at 3 p.m. 

Everyone is welcome - FREE admission
Donations appreciated
Dinner $8 adults $4 kids 12 & under and 55+ free

Throughout the day there will be Native singers, a drum group and dance demonstrations, which include: Brush, Hoop, Tolowa, Aztec, Shake Head, Pow Wow dancers, as well as American Indian arts and crafts available for sale.

Tribal Dance demonstrations begin at 11 a.m. - last dance at 6:15 p.m.

No drugs or alcohol allowed - smoke free event.
