MAWA hosted Potluck dinner

Our partners at MAWA, along with VP, will be hosting this potluck dinner. Everyone is welcome.

Please bring something to share if you are able.

The word pot-luck is a “communal meal, where guests bring their own food,” originating in the 1930s during the Depression and is an eggcorn from potlatch.

A potlatch is a gift-giving feast practiced by indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast of Canada and the United States, among whom it is traditionally the primary economic system. This includes the Heiltsuk, Haida, Nuxalk, Tlingit, Makah, Tsimshian, Nuu-chah-nulth, Kwakwaka’wakw, and Coast Salish cultures. Potlatches are also a common feature of the peoples of the Interior and of the Subarctic adjoining the Northwest Coast, though mostly without the elaborate ritual and gift-giving economy of the coastal peoples.
