Annual Potlatch & Pageants

We are postponing our potlatch and pageants until further notice, due to COVID-19. We look forward to meeting in person again. 

“The urban potlatch, as we refer to this one, is a combination of things.  It started out as an opportunity for the native community to get together in Fairbanks.  And slowly, it evolved into more than that.  It is an opportunity to display our culture to the non-Native community; educating and showing them the strength and beauty of our culture and its customs.  It also helps to keep our culture alive through practice by living it and breathing it.”   –Morris Thompson 1993 Fairbanks Daily Newsminer
