  • northwest based emcees

    Money and funds these days are getting harder to raise. So, the local committee is looking for a good locally (pacific northwest)based emcee that is good and can keep the spirit of our gathering at a top notch level.
    Gas prices last year and the slumping economy is having us scale back on travel costs and we are looking to keep a top notch gathering, with less money going out for fringe costs, (i.e. air and trans. $.)
    Any ideas?

    Do you feel inclined to divulge which powwow or at least the general area (county?) and month your powwow is held?

    I don't know all of the available MC's but here are the ones I do know. Listed in no particular order:

    Harold Belmont (Suquamish) is in Seattle, WA
    Arnold Littlehead (Assiniboine Sioux) is in Olympia, WA
    Arlee Neskahi (Dine') is in Seattle, WA
    Ray Friberg (Tulalip) is at Tulalip, WA
    Frank "Sonny" Eaglespeaker (Blackfoot) is at Yelm, WA (sings, dances, MC's, AD's, all at the same time. He's da Indian Superman.)
    Bob Tom (or Toms?) (Grand Ronde) is around Portland, OR
    Nick Sixkiller (Siletz?) is probably around Siletz or Portland, OR (Sorry Nick I don't know!)
    Thomas Morning Owl (Umatilla/Blackfoot I think?) is at Pilot Rock, OR (near Pendleton)
    Fred Hill Sr. (Umatilla/??) is at Mission (Pendleton), OR
    George Menninick (Yakama/Nez Perce/??) is at Toppenish or White Swan or ?? around here on da Yakama Rez, WA
    Mike Squeochs (Yakama/??) is also around "here" on the Yakama rez
    Gabby Corral (Spokane/??) is around Spokane, WA (I think?)
    David Brown Eagle (Spokane, Blackfoot, Ho-Chunk) is at Spokane, WA
    Soy Redthunder (Nez Perce/??) is at Elmer City, WA (near Nespelem)
    Sonny Quinto (Spokane are ya? or Kalispel?) is around Spokane, WA
    Wayne Thunderchild (Cree) is around Edmonds, WA
    Dave Madera (Spokane/??) is around Spokane, WA (I haven't seen him as MC but he works very well with Gabby Corral as an MC/AD team)
    I have MC'd ONCE (a Muckleshoot Monthly Powwow) and AD'd ONCE (Sauk-Suiattle Traditional Powwow) and got good feedback both times but I'll leave that stuff up to the pro's for now.

    All of these men are talented speakers and as a former committee member in several places I can say all seem fair and willing to work with a committee to hammer things out based on budget and needs.

      Dude, that's a who's who on staff in the northwest. Good list. I have heard mostly Wayne Thunderchild and David Brown Eagle. I like them both.
