Winter Blessing

  • overview

    The Coeur d’Alene Tribe recognizes winter as a quiet season of reflection. It is a time to come together and reflect on the past year as well as look forward to the New Year. Historically, during the cold winter months, the Coeur d’Alenes spent time with each other in lodges, retelling the stories of their ancestors. In honor of this great tradition of sharing and coming together, the Coeur d’Alene Tribe presents Winter Blessing, an evening of Coeur d’Alene tribal culture and history. All are welcome to join in honoring one of the strongest tribal customs. The evening will include theatrical storytelling, canoe revitalization ceremony, an amazing traditional “Prairie Chicken” dance contest and complimentary fry bread and huckleberry jam.
