Additional Details:
The Word “Potlatch” is taken from the Chinook Jargon. The Indians Potlatch is a great feast given by the chief to all of the tribes round about, whence the guests return to their tepees laden with gifts after a week of almost profligate hospitality. Seattle has expanded the definition to cover its magnificent annual spectacle. “The Golden Potlatch,” which is, in its every feature, a “free” feast spread for the whole world and its brother.
