In 2014, team of Native activists and allies successfully advocated for the City of Seattle to recognize the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples’ Day. That year, United Indians hosted Seattle’s first Indigenous Peoples’ Day celebration.

Stay tuned for news about Indigenous Peoples’ Day 2021, which this year falls on October 11th!

In 2020, Indigenous Peoples’ Day went digital. You can watch our virtual celebration on Facebook or Vimeo.


Thank you to the sponsors of our 2020 Indigenous Peoples’ Day Celebration!

Our community events are the backbone of our organization, bringing community together and often bringing in much support for our programs. These events could not happen without the generous support of dedicated volunteers. There are a variety of volunteer opportunities within these events, including setting up, cleaning, serving food, assisting elders, and much more! Learn more here.
