Living History Performance

Experience magnificent Northwest Coast masks as they come to life in the glimmering firelight of a Kwakwaka’wakw ceremonial house. The Lelooska Family shares the songs, dances, stories, and masks which display the rights, crests, and privileges bestowed on them by the late Chief James Aul Sewid. Chief Tsungani carries on the traditions of his brother, the late Chief Lelooska, performing with other family members in Ariel, Washington, 31 miles northeast of Portland, Oregon.

The performance you will witness was
developed by Chief Lelooska, Chief James Aul Sewid and tribal elders to share the history and culture of the Kwakwaka’wakw people. The Lelooska Foundation has sponsored these programs since 1977.

The evening events begin at 4:30 pm with a reception in the Lelooska Museum and the Silent Auction in the Gathering Hall.

We are very grateful for the many individuals and businesses that are donating a wide array of items for our silent auction.

The silent auction will close at 7pm. At that time we will open for seating for a special dance performance in our ceremonial house.

After the performance we will announce the auction results and serve dessert in the Lelooska Museum. We hope you can join us for this event!
