Indigenous People Festival
on June 8th @ the Seattle Center

Hi everyone,

Fun weekend at the THWA Culture Fair and Sealaska community meetings! (Be sure to cast your ballot either by mailing in your paper proxy or voting on-line at MySealaska.) Another fun family-friendly event to add to your calendar is the Indigenous People Festival at the Seattle Center on Saturday, June 8th at 11am ­– 5pm.

Seattle Indian Health Board has hosted this event for more than a decade, bringing together Native communities in celebration of indigenous cultures and traditions.

This year’s program consists of a variety of Native performers, art, food, workshops, and more.

Dance and drum groups, rock bands, storytellers, comedians, and others will perform on two stages—including Seattle Center’s outside Mural Amphitheatre stage—throughout the day.

Visitors will also have the opportunity to participate in workshops, view traditional food and beading demonstrations, and purchase authentic Native artwork from numerous artists from various indigenous backgrounds.

If you are interested in attending, make sure to let us know on Facebook.
& sponsorship benefits.

Hope to see you there.
