October 10 is Indigenous People’s Day
On Monday, October 10, 2022, the United States celebrate Indigenous People’s Day – an honoring of the past, present, and futures of Native People in lieu of Columbus Day. On this, and every day, we recognize the histories, cultures and contributions of Native people in Washington state and beyond. We acknowledge that Seattle was built on the traditional land of the first people of Seattle – the Duwamish People – and honor with gratitude the land itself and the Duwamish Tribe.
