Indigenouz Presence, Place and Identity

Strengthening the Indigenous presence in Seattle’s parks and public spaces through cultural, arts, and heritage activities that impart knowledge, promote understanding, create opportunities for transformative relationships and collaborations, and build Native identity and leadership

Project Description

We aim to expand how we activate spaces and places for Native people. Our welcoming and inclusive events will include powwows, Coastal Days, veterans’ ceremonies, parade groups, canoe mini-journeys, and art exhibits in places such as Victor Steinbrueck Park and Camp Long. Cross-cultural exchange and relationship building are key priorities.We continually work to address the invisibility of Native peoples by giving them opportunities to strengthen their identity, cultural knowledge, and leadership skills while also fostering engagement between Native and non-Native youth, adults, families, and leaders.
