Potlatch Fund builds on the Native tradition of giving, measuring wealth not in possessions, but in generosity. With your generous help we honor, enrich, share and protect Tribal culture and traditions.
This 18th annual event is an opportunity to be part of the important work Potlatch Fund undertakes in Native communities across Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana, all while enjoying an evening that is rich in Native tradition, culture, and heritage.
This year, we celebrate online as a way to keep our loved ones and communities safe from COVID-19. Our virtual Gala welcomes Edgar Villanueva, author of Decolonizing Wealth, as our 2020 Keynote speaker, Squaxin Island Tribe as our host nation, presentation of the Spirit of Reciprocity Award, and performances by Squaxin Island Tribal members, Supaman, ASCXNSION, Hailey Tayathy, Sho Sho Esquiro, Black Belt Eagle Scout & Calina Lawrence!
Stay after the event to chat with friends and loved ones for the 49 After Party Jam!
