Elizabeth Peratrovich Day Celebration 2012

The Seattle Tlingit & Haida Chapter held an Elizabeth Peratrovich Celebration on Saturday, February 18, 2012 at the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center. Over 300 Tlingit, Haida, Tsimshian Natives and other community members attended.

Keynote speaker Ishmael Hope, a great grand-nephew of our elder Ellen Hope Hays, highlighted the lives and struggles of our Alaska Native pioneers who founded and led the Alaska Native Brotherhood (ANB) and Alaska Native Sisterhood (ANS). Ismael a well known actor and storyteller, is writing and directing a play for the upcoming 100th anniversary of ANB.

Central Council sent greetings through 1st Vice-President Will Micklin and 6th Vice-President Lowell Halverson. Both acknowledged our chapter work and the current effort to educate ourselves on the ongoing Alaska subsistence issues. We live in the “lower 48” but we are tied to the Native foods that come from the Alaska land and waters. These foods are an integral part of our cultural identity. The Seattle Chapter will be holding a workshop regarding subsistence issues on March 17 at the Duwamish Longhouse.

ANS Grand Camp President Mary Brown and ANB Grand Camp 1st Vice President Eric Morrison, representing Grand Camp President Dennis Demmert, brought greetings from both organizations. The 100th anniversary of the founding of the ANB will be held in Sitka October 2012. Everyone was invited to attend.

Three Native women leader/educators were honored in the spirit of civil rights leader Elizabeth Peratrovich. They were:
Vicki Segundo (Haida) – Seattle Public Schools
Robin Pratt (Tlingit) – Auburn Public Schools
Davina Barril (Tlingit) – Chief Leschi School
These strong women leaders continue to provide ongoing support and assistance for their students and families. Descendents of the Peratrovich family who reside in Washington were introduced as a group by Evelyn Peratrovich, the family historian. There are approximately fifty who reside here.

Many chapter members led by co-chairs Cecilia Tavoliero and Karen Elliott, worked on this successful event honoring our great civil rights leader.
