Cancelled Til 2022 Tamkaliks Celebration (Pow Wow)
On Wednesday April 7th, 2021 the Tamkaliks Committee convened in Pendleton to deliberate hosting a Tamkaliks Celebration this coming July. It is with sadness that we announce that the Celebration will once again be postponed. This was not an easy decision, but Nez Perce Wallowa Homeland and the Tamkaliks Committee agree that this is the best decision for the safety of our elders and our communities. Just as in 2020, we will still award two students with the Taz Conner and Terry Crenshaw Memorial Scholarships of $500 each (Due May 3rd for Wallowa County students and June 28th for Native students). Please see www.wallowanezperce.org/resources for application details or to donate to the scholarship fund.
Even though there will be no Tamkaliks this summer, we do hope that you will come see us here in Wallowa. The Visitor Center will be open all summer and the powwow grounds are open for dispersed camping with all of our facilities up and running. Come and camp, bring your family, your horses, your drums. Explore the Wallowa valley, the canyon country and the mountain trails. It is always our wish that song, dance, and prayer resonate from this special place, Tamkaliks or no. We greatly appreciate your understanding and hope you are able to fill your season with safe and rewarding activities. We look forward to hosting you for the Tamkaliks Celebration again, once it is safe to do so. Qeci’yew’yew Thank you and be well.
