ilani is reopening Thursday, May 28th at Noon.
The last few weeks have brought unprecedented challenges as COVID-19 swept its way across the globe and into our communities. We have been thinking of you all through this difficult time as health and safety concerns mingled with the stress of these unprecedented events.
We hope that you and your loved ones are healthy, happy and returning to normal life and the things you enjoy. We are looking forward to your return and invite you to join us this month as we reopen on Thursday, May 28th at Noon.
To commemorate the reopening of ilani, leaders of ilani and the Cowlitz Tribe will gather outside for a blessing ceremony led by Tanna Engdahl, tribal spiritual leader at 10:00am on Thursday, May 28th and the public is invited to join. To maintain the health and safety of all ilani staff and guests, new protocols will be in place, adhering to guidelines established by the Centers of Disease Control and Washington health authorities.

Cowlitz Indian Tribe donates $775,000 to Pacific Northwest nonprofits aiding in COVID-19 response
“We are honored to offer our support to those who are most vulnerable to the impacts of COVID-19, from its strain on personal health, to its toll on family finances,” said William Iyall, chairman of the Cowlitz Indian Tribe. “However, this is a bittersweet moment for the Cowlitz Indian Tribe, as these contributions are made possible by the many individuals who have been integral to the success of our casino, ilani, which has temporarily ceased operations as we work to protect our team members and their families, as well as our guests and the community. We are hopeful that by following guidance from health and governmental authorities, we will overcome this crisis together and be able to resume our normal ways of life.”
