On Friday and Saturday, October 1-2, teams of talented chefs representing Oregon’s tribal casinos will gather at The Mill Casino • Hotel for the Rez Kitchen Tour, a two-day culinary competition showcasing the food, flavors and traditions of Oregon’s nine federally-recognized Tribes.

The Rez Kitchen Tour event features live cooking demonstrations, a juried Chef’s Competition, People’s Choice Awards, traditional native music, vendor booths, and free samples of delicious artfully prepared dishes inspired by thousands of years of tradition.  An admission fee of $5 or 2 canned goods is requested, with 100% of the proceeds going to the South Coast Food Share program.

The Rez Kitchen Tour kicks off at 4 p.m. on Friday, October 1 in The Mill Casino’s aptly named Salmon Room where, prior to the Chef’s Competition, guests can enjoy traditional Native American music as they visit various vendor booths.  At 5 p.m. the “cheftestants” will take center stage, when their entrées featuring two traditional food staples of the local area  – huckleberries and salmon will be judged on “Best Use of Traditional Ingredients” and “Best overall” by a panel of local and regional chefs and food experts.
On Saturday at 11a.m., the Rez Kitchen Tour really heats up as the “cheftestants” serve up their delectable dishes in competition for the coveted People’s Choice Award.  From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. the participating chefs will be sharing their cooking techniques on the Main Stage in the Salmon Room, preparing dishes that showcase their talent. In addition to voting, guests attending Saturday’s events will be eligible to win a variety of door prizes including hotel packages, gift cards and other prizes, donated by the participating vendors.  A recipe and information pamphlet also will be available.

The 2010 Mill Luck Salmon Celebration is History! What An Event!

Events Comments Off

It was a very full and lovely Labor Day Weekend at The Mill Casino Hotel & RV Park.   We hosted the 7th Annual Mill Luck Salmon Celebration on Saturday and Sunday; a celebration of the heritage, culture and traditions of the Coquille Indian Tribe and other Pacific Northwest Tribes.

The event attracted numerous visitors, Native American artisans and musicians from throughout the Western United States and Canada.

We opened the festival on Saturday September 4 and continued through Sunday September 5 with a free outdoor festival that featured vendors, music, dances and hands-on cultural demonstrations.   One of the highlights of the weekend was the exciting canoe race (a real nail biter), the famous traditional Salmon Bake, and Joanne Shenandoah giving us a preview of her Saturday evening concert (which was fabulous).

Layers and layers of sound add to the overall festival feeling of the Salmon Celebration — from the crackle of the cooking fire, to the singing and drumming at the entertainment tent, to the shouts of canoe teams members getting organized, to the ruffle and snap of flags in the wind… and all around, there was lots of conversation and laughter.

See all of our event photos on our Facebook Page (and post yours!).

According to Shirod Younker, this was the closest finish to any heat of any canoe race in the 7 year history of the Salmon Celebration. Very exciting.

Joanne Shenandoah gave a sneak preview of her evening concert on Saturday afternoon in the entertainment tent.

Chief Tanner, of the Coquille Indian Tribe enjoys his fry bread very much. Fry Bread is something akin to a doughnut, and it comes with whipped butter sweetened with cranberries. It beats elephant ears, hands down!

One of the hands-on demonstration tables gives guests a chance to make a simple weaving project. In this photo, a child demonstrates how to make a simple doll.

Prayers and blessings for the canoe races were given in various languages.
