United Indians of All Tribes Foundation

  • 4 people are interested

United Indians of All Tribes Foundation is reaching out to the community to help with our Food Empowerment Program. Volunteers will help put together individual food packages for families. As well as addressing the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Food Empowerment Program's mission is to provide nutritional assistance through weekly food packages and education about how to prepare nutritious meals, with a focus on affordability and cultural practice. This service is offered to members of our community who struggle to have this basic need met, empowering them to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. Volunteers will follow the instruction of the Food Distribution Lead to ensure enough packages are produced. Tasks include (but are not limited to) proportioning bulk foods, lifting heavy packages, cutting open various boxes/bags, setting up tables, loading and unloading delivery vehicles, breaking down boxes for recycle.

Mission Statement

Our mission is 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.

Description

United Indians of All Tribes Foundation is a private nonprofit corporation that was founded in Seattle, Washington in 1970. We began as a small group of Northwest Native Americans and their supporters, led by the late Bernie Whitebear, who occupied Fort Lawton to reclaim a land base for the urban Indians living in and around Seattle. A twenty-acre site was eventually secured for this purpose in what is now Discovery Park.

UIATF provides an extensive array of culturally responsive services and programming to Seattle and King County’s urban Native community. Our mission is 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. Our headquarters, the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center, was completed in 1977, and has become a hub of activity for Native peoples and their supporters locally, nationally, and internationally. Daybreak Star is home to a permanent collection of Native art, as well as the Sacred Circle Gallery featuring rotating exhibits of work by contemporary Native artists.
