Sealaska is partnering with Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska (Tlingit & Haida) and Sealaska Heritage Institute (SHI) to host a community gathering in Roseville, CA on Saturday, Jan. 11. The event is an opportunity for shareholders and tribal citizens that live away from their traditional homelands to connect with their culture and learn more about the three organizations. The event will be held at the Randy Peters Catering and Event Center, 105 Vernon Street Roseville CA,95678.
This is an all-ages event and there will be information about scholarships through SHI, internships at Sealaska and attendees will also be able to obtain tribal identification cards through Tlingit & Haida. Sealaska will host a welcoming reception on Friday, Jan. 10 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Randy Peters Center.
Haida master artist Reg Davidson will lead participants through a formline design workshop during the day on Saturday. There will also be a dance performance by the Southern Winds Dance Group.
Davidson will also teach a three-day bentwood box making class in Roseville from Jan. 9-12. The class is free but space is limited.
In November, Sealaska announced plans to invest $10 million in support of revitalizing the Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian languages. Shareholders who attend the community gathering will learn more about the endowment and language initiative plans and also have an opportunity to meet Sealaska directors and company leadership.
Sealaska’s Shareholder Relations staff and notaries will be available to assist shareholders in completing Sealaska Stock Wills, and attendees will be able to visit booths with information on services provided by Sealaska, Tlingit & Haida, and SHI.
