Howdy folks! It doesn’t quite feel like it, but autumn is on our door. That means elk hunting, apple picking, steelhead fishing, feasts, festivals, and even pumpkin spice lattes.
Here are a few events coming up you don’t want to miss!
Youth Salmon Celebration and Call to Action – Next Saturday!
11 am Saturday, September 24th at Hell's Gate State Park, Lewiston, Idaho
Celebrate and honor youth voices, Tribal justice, and Snake River salmon! The Celebration will bring together community members, Tribal Leaders, Snake River youth organizers, and Tribal youth from across the region to present, share stories, celebrate, and act!
Program starts at 11am, with speakers from Nez Perce Tribe, CTUIR Youth Leadership Council, Youth Salmon Protectors, Tribal Elders, and more. Lunch will be provided at 12:30pm, followed by a salmon ceremony on the Snake River, tribal canoes, and creation of a salmon mural together.
If you would like to go but don’t have a vehicle, please reach out to the FOC office. We are hoping to carpool down.
Buffalo Field Campaign Roadshow – October 6th
6pm Thursday, October 6th at One World Cafe, Moscow, Idaho
This is a free event to learn about the conservation and culture of the American Buffalo. Nez Perce Tribe member and BFC executive director James Holt will be presenting alongside BFC co-founder Mike Mease.
Celebrate the 25 years of on-the-ground advocacy this remarkable grassroots group has done for America’s national animal. Alongside BFC leaders will be indigenous flautist Mignon Geli.
Annual FOC November Meeting – November 5th
5pm Saturday, November 5th at the 1912 Center in Moscow, Idaho
Save the date! The annual meeting, potluck, and silent auction is ON. We need items for the auction, so if you have outdoor gear, books, artwork, gift cards to your business, etc, please email Paul at firstname.lastname@example.org with an item description. He will respond and let you know if it will work.
We’re really excited to see everyone in person once again. If you don’t think you’ll make it in to Moscow, keep an eye out for an online hang out that we hope to do before the end of the year.
Thanks for everything, folks! Excited to see you at one of the many great events coming up.
