Anniversary of longhouse celebrated in Seattle

January 23, 2014 by  

The Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center in Seattle is holding a 5th anniversary celebration this January.

The original longhouse was destroyed by a fire in 1894 and this one was built in 2009. The celebration is set to feature an open house of the Center, a reception and a concert. Storyteller Roger Fernandes will be presenting the “Epic of the North Wind” and encourage the audience to join him in song and dance. It should be an excellent opportunity for guests to experience the Duwamish culture and celebrate the history of the area.

The Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center features a Native art gallery, the Duwamish History Museum, a gift shop, tribal offices and, of course, a longhouse.

It’s likely that the organizers of the event will be advertising in the community. This may include investing in posters or flyers from Seattle printing companies. Items such as flyers are inexpensive to produce and can be distributed in many ways to help spread the word; they can be hand delivered, sent through direct mail or even handed out on a street corner. They are seen as the most effective advertising formats.

The Duwamish Longhouse anniversary celebration will take place on January 25 from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM. Admission is free. For those who wish to visit at a different time, the Center is open Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM. To learn more about the celebration or any other aspect of the Center call 206-431-1582.
