Give-A-Way and the Potlatch Tradition

The Pacific Northwest indigenous people's tradition of Potlatch or give-a-way is a gathering in which a family or tribal leader hosts a ceremonial festival.  A primary purpose of the Potlatch is the re-distribution of wealth and teaching of the concept of giving. In honor of the spirit of Potlatch, we will be giving away a few of our silver pendants  periodically. Find out more about the Potlatch traditon on our Art for Social Change page.
