Deitrich Peters Bio

I was born in Dallas, Oregon and I'm a member of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde. I am Kalapuya, Rouge River, and Umpqua. My given name is Cosa Tance, meaning "Sky Dancer". My English name is Deitrich David Peters. I was given both my grandfather's middle names. I grew up in Oregon and love to travel to as many cultural events as I can.
I love my culture and traditions - making things with my hands, working with feathers, beadwork, traditional dancing, storytelling and of course my all time favorite, flute playing. I have learned these many things from our elders, and have been gifted these things by the Creator.
