Smoken BBQ
Smoken BBQ: Carl "Hungry Horse" Coffey
Orginated from Oklahoma, part of Choctah/Cherokee tribes, living a passion past down from my grandfather of fishing the rivers and sharing with family and friends.

At an early age, I could seek out and find most fish in a river, as I grew older, I learned the traditions of smoking fish, as a way to preserve longer. In the early 1970's my family moved to the Northwest (Camas, WA) area. Boy, what a river to live on (The Washougal) plentiful of fish.

I met and became close to local tribal members up and down the Columbia River. I seem to had my calling a few years back when i had this vision to work with many tribes who worked and caught fish at many different tribal fish camps. I wanted to partake in seeing and working with the families who did the fishing.

I had a vision of me going to the camps and providing hot cooked meals for those who worked the river. I would also smoke and process fish for them to take back home, they would in return help me with fish to take to powwows throughout Oregon and Washington.

I would use funds earned from sales at the powwows to then return to the fishcamps in seasons. So now this is my journey in life, as I say "Keeping it in the Circle". Providing food to all from the powwow trail to the rivers and back again.

Pendleton Woolen Mills
Pendleton Woolen Mills is honored to serve and support the Native American community.
The American Indian College Fund is committed to transforming the landscape of higher education for Native Americans.  This fund provides scholarships to thousands of Native students each year, while granting additional resources to the community-based and culturally-focused tribal colleges that these students attend.  The Pendleton blankets are a collaboration between Pendleton Woolen Mills and the American Indian College Fund; each blanket designed to honor and reawaken a vital part of Native history.  A portion of the proceeds will help create scholarships, allowing even more students access to higher education.
Additionally, Pendleton promotes wellness in the Native American community by collaborating with the Native American Rehabilitation Association (NARA), working closely with the organization to provide blankets for fund-raising.

Pendleton Retail locations across the U.S. hold in-store events throughout the year designed to support Native American efforts.  Proceeds of the sales received during an event go to community outreach organizations and programs.  

Native American artists may submit their blanket design to Pendleton.  The company produces the selected blanket design. The designer is compensated for the design, and in addition, receives public acknowledgement for their work.

Home Store manager, Shelly Schramm, will attend next week's Indigenous Experience NW event.  She will bring information to share with artists on how to submit their own designs.  Shelly will also have American Indian College Fund blankets from past years.
