Duwamish Children’s Potlatch Share Cultural and Food Traditions on April 26

Duwamish Children's PotlatchJoin us for a free children’s program sharing the cultural and food traditions of Chief Seattle’s Duwamish Tribe at the Duwamish Children’s Potlatch on Sunday, April 26.

Traditionally potlatches were winter season gift-giving feasts. The warmer months were for procuring food and wealth for the family and village, then coming home and sharing with neighbors and friends.
