Housing sought for Pow Wow guests

Organizers of the fifth annual Gathering of the Tribes Pow Wow are looking for housing for a youth group from Kake. The pow wow will take place July 5 through July 7 in Juneau.

About 20 people are coming from Kake, 16 teen-age dancers and musicians and four adults. Pow Wow organizer Garfield Katasse is hoping a local church or similar group can donate a place for the group to sleep.

"They don't need to be fed," he said. "They want to stay at a church because they want to stay all together."

The event is organized by the Juneau Pow Wow Club. As with past events, there will be dancing, an arts and crafts fair and a salmon bake. Organizers of the event are also looking to have fish donated for the big salmon bake July 3. Katasse said folks with fish can trade for tickets to the pow wow.

"That would really help us," he said. "We get 300 to 400 people. People bring hot and cold dishes, too, but we want to have a little salmon for everyone."

Call Katasse at 790-2496 with any leads or call Justin McDonald at 785-6471 in Kake with leads on housing.
