3rd Annual Warm Springs Tribal Celebration - cancelled

*Event Cancelled Due to Inclement Mountain Weather.

On Saturday, September 28th, the Warm Springs Tribes will celebrate the history of their ancestors during the 3rd Annual Warm Springs Tribal Celebration at Mt. Hood Skibowl.

The festivities will begin at 11:00am at Skibowl west with the parade entrance of tribal members in full regalia on horseback.  This will be followed by a dedication of the Mt. Hood Tribal Heritage Center, with the traditional breaking of bread and song.  Tribal natives will be hosting a variety of booths showcasing and demonstrating native wares and foods.  Experience beading and basket weaving demonstrations; witness how local Salmon caught by Tribal members is cooked in the traditional fashion.  The booths will be open 11:00am to 4:00pm, with opportunities for viewing and purchasing of items.  Throughout the day a variety of traditional dances with drumming will be performed by Warm Springs members.

In 2012 Mt. Hood Skibowl opened the Mt. Hood Tribal Heritage Center, named’ Wiwnu Wash’ which translates as ‘the place of the Huckleberry’.  This center showcases the past, present and future of the three Warm Springs tribes, along with a display of native items.  Even though the Warm Springs Tribes were guaranteed by treaty the right to use the lands now known as Government Camp, the Tribes have, until now, been denied full access.  Skibowl welcomes the return of the Warm Springs tribes back to their native lands on Mt. Hood.  Tours of the Heritage Center will be available all day.

The historic benefit celebration is sponsored by the Cultural and Heritage Department of the Warm Springs Tribes in cooperation with Mt. Hood Skibowl.
