TICKETS to Native Life in the CITY

Please join United Indians of All Tribes Foundation for our annual benefit gala. Native Life In The City: Walking in Two Worlds will be held at the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center in Discovery Park on April 21, 2018 in support of Daybreak Star and United Indians of All Tribes Foundation.

Since 1970, nonprofit United Indians has served low-income Native Americans of all Tribes from throughout the Puget Sound area. We are honored to continue upholding founder Bernie Whitebear’s mission to provide educational, cultural, and social services that reconnect Indigenous people in the Puget Sound region to their heritage by strengthening their sense of belonging and significance as Native people.

Dinner, Awards, Silent Auction and Fun

Enjoy a cocktail hour and hors d’oeuvres and bid on original handcrafted jewelry, art and more by local artists at the silent auction.

Experience an inspired banquet dinner by renowned Native chef Ramon Shiloh of Portland, Oregon, a modern caretaker of natural Indigenous cuisine (Vegan and vegetarian options are available), followed by a dessert dash. We will also be honoring local notables with the Bernie Whitebear and Contributor of the Year Awards.

All proceeds directly fund the critical social, educational, and cultural services United Indians provides to American Indians and Alaska Natives of all tribes and ages throughout the Puget Sound area.

Bernie Whitebear Award Nominations

Bernie Whitebear dedicated his life to celebrating traditional and modern Indian ways and to challenging outsiders’ perceptions. He is best remembered for leading the takeover of the land where the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center now sits, and for founding United Indians of All Tribes Foundation to ensure that the urban Indian community will always have a cultural home.

In Bernie’s honor, each year we recognize one individual who has made a difference in our community through perseverance, commitment, passion and love for our people and community. Thank you for your nomination.

Thank you to all who made a nomination by our March 9, 2018 deadline!
