United Indians’ Seafair Indian Days Powwow is held annually on the third weekend in July, in conjunction with Seattle Seafair, at our Powwow Grounds adjacent to the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center.

Attendance over the 3-day event ranges from 7,000-10,000, including visitors, dancers, musicians, vendors and tourists.

This proud tradition brings Native Americans of all tribes and cultures together to celebrate. UIATF has held the 3 day long celebration in conjunction with Seafair for the past 30 years.

The Powwow showcases traditional Indian cooking, jewelry-making, music, and especially dancing. Throughout the day, tribes from the United States and Canada dance in full tribal regalia and eagle-feather head-dresses.

All are welcome, Native and non-Native alike! If this is your first time attending a Powwow, we invite you to look at our “What to Expect” page for information and best practices. 

Each year, a Powwow Princess is chosen from applicants around the region. Meet the 2017-18 Seafair Powwow Princess, Oteskwe Shebala
