2014 Tribal Cohort Graduation Celebration

A great heartfelt thank you for all that supported, shared, like, tolerated and participated in this project. With your generosity and support, we were able to reach and exceed our initial goal. We surely couldn’t have done it without you! We sold 115 of the 150 prints with final destinations of 19 states and 3 countries!!! For those that were able to take advantage of our “FUN”draising campaign and received serigraphs, we hope you enjoy your new art pieces for years to come! At this time the serigraph promotion is over, but we will keep our gofundme site open a little longer and greatly appreciate any additional financial support or well wishes here at our gofundme site.  Thanks again!

WE DID IT! We are the 2014 MPA TRIBAL COHORT of The Evergreen State College and we are GRADUATING! We have overcome many challenges, individually and as a cohort, to get here. Many of you have supported us on this journey in immeasurable and precious ways, and we are deeply grateful.

We are hoping to celebrate this achievement, together as a cohort and with our family and friends, but we need your help in covering the costs of the celebration. By crowd-funding the costs, the burden is spread out and "˜many hands make light work.' Please consider making a donation to help us cover the costs of our celebration meals. Every little bit helps. Thank you so much!
