Evergreen Longhouse Receives $40,000 Grant in Support of Native Arts and Cultures

The Longhouse Education and Cultural Center at Evergreen has received a $40,000 grant to strengthen arts and cultures infrastructure from the Native Arts & Cultures Foundation.

According to Longhouse Director Tina Kuckkahn-Miller, the grant will be used to support a variety of cultural activities throughout this coming year, such as bringing indigenous artists to lecture and create art at Evergreen, supporting our annual Native youth art event, and other arts-related activities.

“We are committed to supporting the preservation of ancient art forms, while also providing a venue for contemporary artistic expression,” says Kuckkahn-Miller. “Funding from the Native Arts and Cultures Foundation will help us deepen our work within the Pacific Northwest region, and we are grateful for their support.”
