Our Celebration Continues

The 15th Annual NAYA Gala & Auction

November 16, 2018

A resounding success!

It was a truly memorable evening – from the fantastic art and experiences showcased and won in our silent and live auctions, to the beautiful invocation shared by the Cowlitz Spiritual Leader, Tanna Engdahl, to the transcendent passages from Swil Kanim‘s violin, to the entertaining encouragement in Emcee Zeke Smith’s and Auctioneer Johnna Well’s banter, to Juanita Tapio Brewer’s inspiring story, we were all deeply moved!

With the help of our wonderful sponsors, guests and supporters, we broke all records and raised a phenomenal $470,000 for our wraparound, life-affirming programs that impact 10,000 community members each year.

A huge thank you for all of those who were able to join us in celebration of Native American Heritage Month –  for standing with us in love and support of Portland’s Native community, and for your partnership in NAYA’s One Home to Many Nations.
