The word "Potlatch" is from the Chinook Jargon, the trade language of the North Pacific Coast Indians. It means a gift or to give. In a larger sense the Indians applied it to a great festival at which gifts were made.
Seattle's Golden Potlatch will be a great festival in celebration of the gift of gold by Alaska to the world through this City, the gateway of the Northern Empire. It will be a week of carnival and jollity. The opening date, July 17, is the anniversary of the arrival of the first treasure ship.
