Here is a special video report from the Eklutna Potlatch & Powwow. Thank you to ten year old Ermelina Gonzalez for her report for the Athabascan Woman Blog. She interviewed Wilson Justin of Christochina and Lee Stephan of Eklutna. Darryl Magdalena spoke on behalf of the National Congress of American Indians. Check out the round dance to the song, Indian Rock & Roll too!

We caught the tail end of the event. Thank you to the Native Village of Eklutna for hosting a great potlatch and powwow! The next one will be in two years.

  1. Very nice. Wish I could have been there. My mother was born in Knik, and nice to see the dances and music.
