Tamkaliks Celebration 2022

July 22-24, 2022

Each July, the Homeland becomes a place of reunion for descendants of the original inhabitants of waláwa, the Wallowa country. Year after year, participants enjoy three days of song and dance, culminating in a walasit service and Friendship feast. Descendants, locals, and visitors attend together. There are many ways to be involved, contribute, and enjoy. Camping and dancer registration is free. Winners and drums are paid in cash. Big ticket raffle items include a buffalo hide and a Pendleton blanket each year. Food and craft vendors are plentiful. All the comforts of town are just a quick walk across the river.

The Tamkaliks Celebration (formerly Wallowa Band Descendants Friendship Potluck & Powwow) is a celebration and recognition of the continuing Nez Perce presence in the Wallowa valley. A standing committee of the Nez Perce Wallowa Homeland oversees and organizes the Tamkaliks Celebration. The Tamkaliks Committee President is Fred Hill. He may be reached through the NPWH Office.
