Rain Forest Potlatch Feast
The Corporate Special Event Network in cooperation with Design Network, and the Squamish Nation Indian Band from the west coast of British Columbia has recently produced two large scale corporate Rain Forest / Potlatch Feast themed events. Our goal is to ensure guests enjoy this unique, full Rain Forest / Potlatch Feast experience.  This unique event includes the following components:

  • Pre event promotion with customized salmon boxes with engraved invitations.
  • Customized framed digital pictures of guests posing with native greeters in full regalia as they arrive for cocktails. Guests to receive pictures at the completion of the event.
  • Edited digital video of event to include décor, entertainment, talking stick presentation ceremony.
  • Spectacular Rain Forest, Salish Indian décor.
  • Presentation ceremony of carved Salish Indian talking stick.
  • Native craft / artesian tables, and wood carving demonstrations.
  • Authentic Potlatch Feast (includes cedar menu for each place setting).
  • Interactive stage show with Eagle Song Dancers.
  • Tour of Squamish Nation heritage and cultural sites with Squamish Elder, Bob Baker as tour guide
  • Landing ceremony with 42’ carved cedar seagoing canoe called Kakwetan (translation: Eagle Circling Above). The seagoing canoe would include 9 paddlers in birch caps plus captain in full regalia drumming on bow of the canoe.

The Corporate Special Event Network has developed a strong working relationship with the Squamish Nation over the past 6 years including Chief Bill Williams who personally attended our most recent Rain Forest / Potlatch Feast event. This relationship in conjunction with numerous discussions with Elder, Bob Baker has enabled the Corporate Special Event Network to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of the Squamish Nation’s incredible heritage, customs and protocol.

For corporate clients that will be using your venue and are interested in a Rain Forest / Potlatch Feast theme event, our event team has developed turnkey Rain Forest / Potlatch Feast event packages to accommodate all budget ranges. The Rain Forest / Potlatch Feast would be suitable for conference opening ceremonies, cocktail receptions, theme events and outdoor barbecues.
