The potlatch ceremony traditionally centers on gift-giving. It remains an important tradition for coastal tribes in the Pacific Northwest, Canada and Alaska. It’s meant as a way to show generosity, promote cooperation, and strengthen social bonds. The practice survived a nearly century-long ban by the government of Canada trying to force assimilation of Indigenous people. We’ll explore how potlatch has evolved over the years and how it fits in with modern culture. Native America Calling is a national call-in program that invites guests and listeners to join a dialogue about current events, music, arts, entertainment and culture.
The program is hosted by Tara Gatewood (Isleta Pueblo) and airs live each weekday from 10-11 am.
