Potlatch

Caravansary - This year we will create a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland: a bazaar of the bizarre wherein treasures of every sort, from every land and age, flow in and out to be flaunted, lost, exploited and discovered. This is not a tourist destination, but a home for travelers who come here bearing gifts. Amid the twisting and the turnings of its souk, participants will come upon an inexhaustible array of teeming goods and unexpected services. Anyone may pose as 'merchant' here, and anyone may play a 'customer', but nothing in this strange emporium shall have a purchase price — no quid, no pro, no quo — no trade at all will be allowed in this ambiguous arcade. According to a rule of desert hospitality, the only thing of value in this 'marketplace' will be one's interaction with a fellow human being.

Based upon a complex algorithmic review of all searches regarding Potlatch, this appears to be the 2014 theme. Lots of hints in the search hits. Now the team just needs to clear all the bureaucratic crap and post it!

Or "one of the regulars" has gone crazy with photoshop & the word "potlatch".

well, I've always wanted to know what it felt like to destroy and break obviously valuable things, maybe even monetary objects, in order to conquer other tribes who cannot respond with the destruction of equal or greater wealth (they lose.) Then there's the drinking and burning of copious amounts of oolichan oil, and throwing up into a fire that sounds fun too. o.k. potlatch. Haven't we been doing this already?

just so it doesn't hit so close to home as a theme... I vote donkey fucking.

Dammit. Can I come over to your house and break my hostess gift, Elorrum? It would be fun!
