Native Professionals Night: Healing With Our Elders
A Potlatch Fund One Fire Storytellers Series With Special Guests Glen and Yvette Pinkham
Started by the Native Youth And Family Center, Native Professionals Night has been an adopted program of Potlatch Fund for the past several years. We are bringing it back this year on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 at 5pm PST with an emphasis on healing and hearing stories from our elders. As the 1 year anniversary of the start of the COVID-19 pandemic comes into view, Potlatch Fund would like to offer a resource for our Native communities to come together in a healing way. We understand the need to visit with elders and with each other as COVID-19 has put barriers on coming together in a cultural and spiritual way for many members of our community. Our first Native Professionals Night of the year will be a one hour and a half event with Glen and Yvette Pinkham, hosted by Potlatch Fund.
The event will be the start of our One Fire Storytellers Series, a new events program at Potlatch Fund. The full events schedule is still TBD and will be announced shortly. The event will take place on zoom and the link will be emailed out the day before the event.
Registration for the event is Free
Donations to Potlatch Fund are always welcome
