Indigenous Peoples’ Day at Daybreak

United Indians of All Tribes Foundation hosted our 8th Indigenous Peoples’ Day celebration on Monday the 10th of October. Prior to the recognition of Indigenous Peoples’ Day in Seattle, organizers led marches and protests in downtown Seattle on “Columbus Day” from 2009-2014 until a team of Native activists and allies successfully advocated for the City of Seattle to recognize the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples’ Day. United Indians has been honored to host the final event of the celebration ever since.

UIATF coordinated with the City of Seattle to provide a full day of sharing starting with a march and gathering at City Hall, then to Daybreak Star Cultural Center for a salmon dinner, cultural performers, and open mic sharing. We further provided T-Shirts, a raffle, and medicine bundles for the community. If you missed it, read the highlights in the Tulalip News!
