Come to the Native American Cultural Encampments summer of 2024, with Deitrich Peters and friends. The public is invited to come learn about Native culture, explore handcrafts and items for sale, watch the Pow-wow style dancing (there is usually one dance where you are invited to participate) and practice traditional skills and crafts. Listen to some beautiful flute playing, enjoy stories, and explore the drum and more. Many different tribes are represented at these gatherings.
SCEC will be there with a table showing Kalapuya Ways items of material culture, and presenting different crafts classes and atlatl throwing. Karen Rainsong, our Executive Director, presents this teaching and may also tell a few Kalapuya stories.
On Sunday mid afternoon there is a big feast where everyone can eat for free. “Indian tacos” are served. No need to RSVP. Please join us!
