The Cowlitz Tribe Qʷáləstiʔ (eulachon smelt) Celebration, originally scheduled for this Saturday March 3rd, is postponed. There has been little sign of the Qʷáləstiʔ Nation’s return to the Cowlitz River this year.
In place of the celebration, Cowlitz spiritual leaders will gather at Gerhart Gardens park to offer prayers, drumming and calling to the Qʷáləstiʔ , so the smelt people will know they are respected by the Cowlitz people. All who wish to attend this prayer and calling are welcome to attend.
Date: March 3rd, 2018
Place: Gerhart Gardens Park, 200 Freedom Way, Longview, WA 98632
