Stories of the native Northwest
Author Pamela Huteson will tell stories from her Tlingit heritage at 5 p.m. Oct. 18 at Bethany Lutheran Church.
Along with storytelling, Huteson will discuss and explain some of the Tlingit regalia, as local Tlingit resident Joe Bennett displays his new Bear Clan dance robe and other ceremonial apparel.
Bring a dish for a potluck dinner, and share fellowship as you learn more about the culture of our close neighbors in the Northwest Indian communities.
