Daybreak Star is a cultural home for urban Indians of all tribes. We strive to provide cultural connections through art, music and dance for all peoples of all ages.
Everything on earth has a purpose,
every disease an herb to cure it,
and every person a mission.
This is the Indian theory of existence

In 1975 the City of Seattle’s 1% for Art Program allocated $80,000 for the Daybreak Star Center. Native American artists were selected through a national competition to create a group of works representative of contemporary Indian and Alaskan Native art. The Daybreak Star Arts Center opened to the public in 1978. In addition to the permanent collection, Sacred Circle Gallery features rotating exhibits.
