Details of Tinsel Korey's trip to visit the Quileute Nation

Tinsel Korey, who plays Emily in the Twilight Saga, recently spent some time in Washington, specifically in La Push, on the Quileute Reservation and did more than sightseeing. She made an effort to learn more about the history of the character she's playing in the movies, and spent time with Quileute youth, explaining the craft of acting. The Examiner has detailed in multiple articles here and here about Tinsel's time in Washington visiting both La Push and the Makah reservation. Remember that Emily's character is Makah so I found it so COOL that Tinsel took the time to visit that area as well.

The Quileute Tribe featured in Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight Saga: New Moon” welcomes actress Tinsel Korey to La Push September 8th. Tinsel is conducting acting workshops at the Tribal School for ages 4-25. “In true native tradition, she is doing what our ancestors & elders have taught us to do for centuries” states Chairwoman Carol Hatch, “Tinsel is giving back and sharing her gifts and talents with our Native youth.”

“We are thrilled to host the 2nd Actor from the Twilight Saga to visit La Push”, states Jackie Jacobs, Quileute Tribal Publicist. “Solomon Trimble visited the Quileute Nation in July during the Quileute Days Celebration and now to share the shores of First Beach with Tinsel Korey is quite a treat. I am humbled by Tinsel Korey’s generosity and graciousness. I am confident Tinsel’s contributions will have a lasting impression on our youth, but I am just as certain that the hospitality of this beautiful nation and beauty and magic that is La Push, will have a lasting impact on her as well”.

Tinsel will make an appearance on First Beach with Quileute Storyteller Chris Morganroth, September 12th and will be available for an autograph session at the conclusion of the storytelling event.


Soon after her visit, which resulted in Quileute publicist Jackie Jacobs saying that she is welcome back any time, she performed a benefit concert for the Quileute Youth in Seattle, Washington.

Korey also came to speak with Makah Nation in Neah Bay as well as to join Quileute elder Chris Morganroth at First Beach during Stephenie Meyer weekend, which was highlighted in a recent New York Times article.

RezNet, an online reporting source who cover Native American stories also had this to say:
LA PUSH, Wash.—Tinsel Korey, who portrays Emily in "The Twilight Saga: New Moon," spent a week on the Quileute Nation here, teaching acting classes at the K-12 Tribal School.

Korey also helped to raise funds for the school with an appearance on First Beach with Quileute elder Chris Morganroth.

"In true Native tradition, she is doing what our ancestors and elders have taught us to do for centuries," Quileute Chairwoman Carol Hatch said. "Tinsel is giving back and sharing her gifts and talents with our Native youth."

Quileute Tribal School principal Al Zantua was quoted by the Peninsula Daily News as saying in a prepared statement: "I think it is fantastic for her to reach out to the kids. After reaching that level of notoriety, it is inspiring and remarkable. Our kids are pretty excited."

The character Emily is actually from the Makah tribe, so Korey also traveled to Neah Bay to speak with the youth and elders of the Makah Nation. Tinsel was welcomed by the Makah with an honoring ceremony and given a flag to their nation.

Korey was scheduled to leave the Quileute Nation Tuesday to begin filming "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" in Vancouver.

"Tinsel now knows were Emily and the ‘Wolf Boys' live and has walked the shores of First Beach," said Quileute publicist Jackie Jacobs. "She can take that spiritual energy with her to the set (of ‘Eclipse').

"Tinsel is bringing awareness to the real Quileute and Makah nations," Jacobs added. "That is very honorable, generous and respectful. She is always welcome to come back anytime."

Jackie Jacobs is the publicist for the Quileute Nation in La Push, Wash.

I'll also repost the video of Tinsel singing "Never Think" while sitting on First Beach. The song was covered by Robert Pattinson on the Twilight
