A potlatch is a gift-giving festival practiced by indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast which is where I come from. I will be gifting with hand made gifts in appreciate for my community. I have been making handmade gifts and would like to share these gifts. I know the holiday season is a very busy time and so I would like to call out all the people who know me (or would like to get to know me) to come so I can give what I have made.,,,,, Please make an effort to come ,,,I really would like to start the New Years with the strong feeling of community being vibrant. I am making a sincere heart effort in the making of gifts to give: this is my way of keeping my tradition alive and gifts made are best given so please come.
