About Us

We are a local community council of the Central Council of the space needleTlingit & Haida Indians of Alaska (CCTHITA), a sovereign entity with a government to government relationship with the United States based in Juneau, Alaska.

The Central Council is made up of elected delegates from 18 Southeast Alaska communities as well as Anchorage, San Francisco and Seattle. Currently there are approximately 4,000 tribal citizens in the Seattle area.

Tribal citizens living in Seattle are ineligible for most services and programs offered by the Central Council.

Over the years the Washington Chapter has raised the funds it needs to support its activities and events locally—through community dances, food sales, donations and raffles. To enhance these efforts, Tlingit and Haida Indians of Alaska Washington Chapter is incorporated as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.

Our Mission: As stated in our Constitution and Bylaws, "We, of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska and our descendants do unite to establish a permanent organization to promote social and recreational needs of our members, to work for the welfare and interest of our people, and to safeguard our aboriginal rights."
