Nause Waiwash Tribal Meetings (open to the public)- Call for dates, times and locations.
Though considered a fundraiser; the annual bake sale in front of the Cambridge Wal-Mart brings members closer together while offering the public a chance to sample our recipes and items outside of our large September Festival.
Usually held at our longhouse, this day is dedicated to celebrating our native heritage and educating the public. We sit under the shade of an old tree and connect again. Stories, skills, crafts and history is traded among those present, while enjoying good food and company. It is a chance for the community to come and learn more about our culture. As the majority of our history is never written, but passed down among the generations, it is the best time to learn from an original resident.
