****
The name “Sweatlatch” is intended on play on the word potlatch from the Chinook Jargon that was once spoken as a trade jargon on the Northwest Coast meaning "to give away" or "a gift”. Potlatch is a term used by different Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast of Canada and the United States including the Heiltsuk, Haida, Nuxalk, Tlingit, Makah, Tsimshian, Nuu-chah-nulth, Kwakwaka’wakw, Coast Salish cultures, and more for different types of cultural events.
