United Indians of All Tribes is looking for volunteers to help get food and essential items to elders in our community!

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 the elders lunch program has transitioned to delivering meals and food items directly to elders in our community.

Every Friday, volunteers will help pick up food donations and sort through them in order to put together packages for individual households. Volunteers will need to be able to lift boxes up to 50lbs.

About United Indians of All Tribes Foundation

Location:

5011 Bernie Whitebear Way, Seattle, WA 98199, US

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.
