Welcome Celebration set for Thursday

PORT ANGELES — Studium Generale will open its fall quarter series with its traditional Welcome Celebration, a partnership among the Port Gamble S’Klallam, Jamestown S’Klallam and Lower Elwha Klallam tribes and Peninsula College.

The Welcome Celebration takes place at 12:35 p.m. Thursday in the Little Theater on the main campus of Peninsula College, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd. The presentations also can be accessed via Zoom livestream at pencol-edu.zoom.us/j/82308557946. The meeting ID is 823 0855 7946.

The event will begin with a welcome from tribal partners who co-created this annual event, followed by a collaborative presentation.

The annual welcome was founded by Lola Moses of the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe in 2016, and in the past years has featured language, poetry, education and culture.

Peninsula College recognizes and honors these traditional nəxʷsƛ̕ay̕əm lands. The first longhouse built on a community college campus, ʔaʔk̓ʷustəƞáwt̓xʷ was named in the nəxʷsƛ̕ay̕əm language and is a gathering place to teach, learn and share cultural traditions, knowledge and identity.
