Tribal Fashion Show

Show Your Native Style 

Wearable art in traditional and contemporary American Indian designs will be on display Saturday, March 21, 2020, at a fashion show co-sponsored by the Coquille Indian Tribe and The Mill Casino-Hotel & RV Park. The show will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Mill Casino-Hotel in North Bend, Ore.

Wearable Art With a Purpose

The Oregon Tribes Luncheon & Fashion Show is a celebration of Oregon’s Native artistry, creativity and tradition.  Scheduled the day after our Elders Honor Day, the event will bring together Elders, our tribal Youth and everyone in between.

Contemporary Indian fashion is experiencing a continuous makeover — an explosion of colors, patterns and designs, propelled by the Internet and social media. This first-ever event will highlight the evolution of Native regalia and artistry, putting a contemporary spin on traditional dress.

Oregon Tribes and individual Native designers are invited to present their original creations. Along with showcasing these talented artists, this event will serve to educate the local public about traditional and contemporary Native culture.

Tickets will be available in advance, priced at $25 for the general public, $20 for tribal members.

  • Tribe Responds to COVID-19

    The Coquille Indian Tribe is taking appropriate steps in response to the COVID-19 epidemic. In addition to the measures undertaken by The Mill Casino-Hotel & RV Park, the tribal government administration is acting to protect the safety of our employees and tribal member families, while maintaining essential services to our membership.

    In the past few days, the tribe has canceled some group events.  We also have curtailed nonessential travel by our employees. We have been communicating to membership daily for the past week, keeping them informed about the status of the epidemic in both Oregon and nationwide, along with the tribe’s actions.

    Starting Monday, many of our tribal government employees will begin working from home. We are keeping our health center open. Other tribal government facilities will either close for the next two weeks or remain open on a limited basis, with minimal staffing. Like other local governments, we will evaluate the unfolding situation and respond accordingly.

    We offer our best wishes to the entire community in this challenging time.
