Mission Statement

United Indians of All Tribes Foundation (UIATF) is a 501c3 non-profit organization founded in Seattle, Washington in 1970. The mission of United Indians is to foster and sustain a strong sense of identity, tradition, and well-being among the Indian people in the Puget Sound area by promoting their cultural, economic, and social welfare. This is accomplished through the development and operation of educational, social, economic, and cultural programs and activities benefiting local Native Americans, and by maintaining a strong link with Indian tribes and other urban Indian organizations and their allies throughout the State of Washington.

The purposes of United Indians are as follows:

1 To acquire support for, design, create, operate, and perpetuate an Indian Cultural-Educational Center as a place where Native Americans can preserve and advance their diverse cultures, and educate people about historical and contemporary Native Americans.

2 To support the sovereignty of Native American Tribes and preserve their cultural and economic independence.

3 To improve the social, educational, economic, and cultural well-being of Native Americans.

Description

United Indians of All Tribes Foundation is a private, non-profit corporation that was founded in Seattle, Washington in 1970. The Foundation began as a small group of Northwest Native Americans and their supporters, led by the late Bernie Whitebear, who engaged in an occupation at 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. 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. The Foundation now provides a variety of social, education and economic development opportunities and cultural activities for the Native American community and also operates the Daybreak Gallery of Native American Art
