Princess Angeline Tea Party

Before the Hudson Bay Company arrived, the preferred native drink was pure water. Refreshing and healthful, it was sourced from one of the many fast running streams that feed the Duwamish River. With English Tea in short supply, Hudson Bay staff adopted the native Glandular Labrador Tea (L. Glandulosum) that became known as Trapper’s Tea.

Free program sharing the cultural & food traditions of Chief Seattle's Duwamish Tribe. Serving Native & English tea, scones & finger sandwiches with a NW Native twist. Your hostess is Princess Angeline’s great-great-grand-niece, Cecile Hansen, the Duwamish Tribal Chairwoman. Tasty fun. 1-3pm. Doors open at noon. RSVP at: Free parking in area.

The Duwamish Native Food Program is sponsored by the DUWAMISH RIVER OPPORTUNITY FUND (DROF): Seattle Department of Neighborhoods & 4Culture. Bi-monthly program, 2nd & 4th Sundays, March-July.

Earth Day Storytelling 2015: New Seeds, New Growth

Join us for this free event. We will gather at the beautiful Duwamish Longhouse in West Seattle, for an afternoon of storytelling in celebration of Earth Day.

Gene Tagaban, Mary Anne Moorman, and Lorraine Bayes will entertain, inspire, and delight us with their storytelling gifts, as we put a special focus on new seeds, new growth: our up and coming youth. A short video will be shown about the youths in the Delridge neighborhood who were inspired by one of last year's stories to paint a 210' mural of the history of the Duwamish River. James Rasmussen from the Duwamish River Clean-up Coalition / TAG will update us on plans to clean the river. We may have a few other surprises, too!. Food and refreshments will be on hand. Donations welcome. Come and enjoy! Be a part of something special!
Made possible in part by a grant from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods / Neighborhood Matching Fund, The Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center, and other friends of the Seattle Storytellers Guild.
