Mill Luck Salmon Celebration Returns September 13-14, 2014

Mill Luck Salmon Celebration Comments Off
Photo: Bill Grami

Summer is in full swing which means the Mill Luck Salmon Celebration is just around the corner! Plan now to experience Native American culture, art, food and music at the 11th Annual Mill Luck Salmon Celebration, September 13-14, 2014.

If you have never been to one of our celebrations, you don’t know what you are missing, so we’ll try to sum it up in 30 seconds:

The celebration is perhaps best known for its traditional salmon bake dinner where fresh salmon is prepared in the time-honored Coquille open-pit manner but it also features numerous family activities (many of them free) including canoe races, cultural exhibits and demonstrations, a Native American marketplace, and educational children’s activities.

Included again this year will be a “weigh station” and awards ceremony for the Annual Coos Basin Amateur Salmon Derby.

The Mill-Luck Salmon Celebration is linked to the traditional observance marking the return of the salmon and is intended to share the heritage, culture and traditions of the Coquille Indian Tribe and other Pacific Northwest Tribes.  Details for the 2014 celebration are still in the works so we encourage you to check back often for updates!

25th Anniversary of The Coquille Restoration Act to be Celebrated at the Mill

Coquille Tribe, Events Comments Off

June 28, 1989 marks a great turning point in Coquille Indian Tribe history.  This was the day the President signed the Coquille Restoration Act into law and restored the Tribe’s government-to-government relationship with the United States that was “terminated” 35 years earlier.  This year the Coquille Tribe celebrates the 25-year anniversary of this occasion and you are invited to join in the celebration at a very special event. Join us June 28-29, 2014 at the Mill Casino Hotel & RV Park to celebrate the history and culture of the Coquille Indian Tribe.

The Coquille Restoration Act is one of the most significant events in Tribal history because it enabled the Coquille Tribe to form a government that could create programs to provide housing, health care, education, elder care, law enforcement and judicial services to its members. Most importantly, it provided the Tribe with the tools necessary to pursue economic self-sufficiency.

With its government and business operations, the Coquille Indian Tribe is now the second largest employer in Coos County, Oregon. Along with The Mill Casino, the Tribe maintains successful business ventures in forestry, arts and exhibits, high-speed telecommunications and renewable energy.

Here are some of the special events scheduled so far for this unique celebration:

Saturday, June 28, 2014

Pow Wow: 1st Grand Entry 1:00 p.m.
Native Craft Vendors
Salmon Bake Meal $15.00 per guest

Sunday, June 29, 2014

Pow Wow: Grand Entry 12:00 p.m.
Native Craft Vendors
Ala Cart Meal Service Available

A Brief History of the Coquille Indian Tribe
The Coquille People lived and prospered along the rivers and estuaries of Oregon’s South Coast for centuries. Euro-Americans began arriving in the late 1700s bringing diseases such as smallpox, measles and plague that decimated entire villages. Then, in the 1850s, a new form of “fever” — the discovery of gold — brought an influx of settlers whose mining bespoiled the rivers and whose hostility toward the Native inhabitants of the area became increasingly violent.

A treaty was negotiated in 1855, but it was overlooked and never ratified by Congress. The Coquille People were removed to the Coast Reservation, where overcrowding and disease took their toll. The few that were able to return to their homeland kept the Coquille Tribe alive until 1954 when, through the Indian termination acts, the federal government ended its recognition 109 tribes. Coquille Tribal members worked hard to right this wrong and by 1989, federal recognition and Tribal sovereignty was successfully restored.

Support the 100KCBS Meals Mission by Bringing Non-Perishable Food Items to Barbecue, Blues & Brews on the Bay!

Kansas City Barbeque Society to Donate 100,000 Meals

The Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBS) is coordinating a national BBQ donation effort to cook and distribute more than 100,000 meals throughout America over the next year. BBQ, Blues & Brews on the Bay in North Bend, Oregon will be participating in the 100 KCBS Meals Mission by collecting food contributions for the hungry.

The general public is invited to attend BBQ, Blues & Brews on the Bay at The Mill Casino May 23-25, 2014 and bring non-perishable food items to donate to the 100KCBS Meals Mission. BBQ, Blues & Brews on the Bay will be working with Oregon Coast Community Action to distribute the food to those in need.


With almost 20,000 members and more than 425 sanctioned BBQ events in its network, KCBS is the largest organization of BBQ enthusiasts in the world. By using its volunteers, judges, cook teams and event organizers, the nonprofit society will be providing fully cooked, world-class pork butts and other nonperishable food items to food banks and other charitable entities coast to coast, border to border.

“By the very nature of our size and collection of food enthusiasts, we have an obvious opportunity to make a difference in America’s hunger crisis,” said Carolyn Wells, executive director of KCBS. “There are more than 7,000 teams who compete at our events, and for years, they all have demonstrated a giving, charitable mentality. We simply believed it was time to organize a major effort that is a natural extension of our overall mission.”

According to recent hunger and poverty statistics, nearly 15 percent of all U.S. households, or 49 million people, struggle to put food on their table. More than 1 in 5 children in the U.S. live below the poverty line. The 100KCBS Meals Mission aims to help in this effort and give back to the community.

By April 30, 2015, KCBS will have donated more than 3,200 pork butts — the equivalent of 25,000 pounds of cooked pork, or, 100,000 meals to this effort. Currently, there are 34 registered teams that will be preparing the donation at The Mill Casino event. In addition to cooking the provided pork butts, all teams, judges and BBQ enthusiasts are encouraged to participate in this mission by bringing non-perishable items to the BBQ, Blues & Brews event.
