Kalama Heritage Festival
Kalama, WA

The Kalama Heritage Festival is a beautiful, culturally rich event that celebrates the impact on the Pacific Northwest region by the Hawaiian Kanaka (humans) that were brought over by the Hudson Bay Fur Trading Company in the mid-1800s. John Kalama was one of the earliest Hawaiians employed by Hudson Bay. The Festival honors the blended bloodlines contributing to the early historical impact of the cultures between Kanaka and the Pacific Northwest Native Americans. The city of Kalama is named in honor of John Kalama and his contributions to the area. This year’s festival promises to have something for everyone to enjoy!

Some highlights attendees can look forward to seeing include; Ora Nui Tahitian dance troupe, a pig cooked in an underground oven (imu), native tribes canoe ceremony, concerts both Friday & Saturday, ticketed VIP meet & greet pa’ina (party) after Saturday concert, finally on Sunday Jimi Hendrix rock & roll music tribute to his Cherokee roots.

Tulalip Tribes
Marysville, WA
Lelooska Foundation
Ariel, WA

Come visit the fur trade camp in our outdoor education area and learn to trade without speaking. This particular sign language was used by some of the Plains and Plateau First Nations and traders when they did not share the same verbal language. Hudson’s Bay Company traders learned this language and used it to help trade their goods across the west. These trade items significantly impacted the art and culture of many First Nations.

Visitors will then have the opportunity to make a simple bracelet with trade beads.

Please register for your arrival time so we can ensure we have materials for you!

This event is made possible with the generous support of Mark & Midori Hanus, Fibre Federal Credit Union, Port of Woodland, Paramount Sewing & Vacuum, and Cowlitz County Tourism.
