Who We Are

Deitrich Deitz Peters

Deitrich “Deitz” Peters

I was born in Dallas, Oregon and I’m a member of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde. I am Kalapuya, Rouge River, and Umpqua. My given name is Cosa Tance, meaning “Sky Dancer”. My English name is Deitrich David Peters. I was given both my grandfather’s middle names. I grew up in Oregon and love to travel to as many cultural events as I can.
I love my culture and traditions – making things with my hands, working with feathers, beadwork, traditional dancing, storytelling and of course my all time favorite, flute playing. I have learned these many things from our elders, or have been gifted these things by the Creator.

Friends and Family

Our group of extended friends and family participate in the cultural activities at the encampments. You can usually find Karen Rainsong from Singing Creek Educational Center with educational materials and resources for everyone, including children, to learn about Native culture. There are many activities such as crafts, field games, and dancing to engage in.
