Grandmothers’ Potlatch for the Youth

In recognition of the fact that there is no cost to attend Gatherings, that watchful elders know the gifts and needs of their communities and the Coastal First Peoples’ relationship with exchange through the potlatch tradition, we introduce the Grandmothers Potlatch. A blanket will be laid and those who are called to do so may lay an item to help the youth in school or training on the blanket. It may be warm boots, hats, mittens for the winter, or books and supplies, or a fun item or toy. The Lummi Grandmothers will know how to distribute your love and offerings.
