ANNUAL FUNDRAISER
Full Moon Celebration

Hunter’s Moon

Because the approach of winter signaled the possibility of going hungry in pre-Industrial times, the Hunter’s Moon was generally accorded with special honor, historically serving as an important feast day in both northern Europe and among many Native American tribes.

Thank you to all the museum supporters and members who helped make our annual fundraiser a success. Despite a short wind storm in the middle of the event, we loved being outside under the redwoods. The dancers were wonderful and the grilled salmon delicious. We celebrated the museum’s work to honor Native American culture through art, song, dance, and food.
