The event creator says
In a place inhabited by indigenous people for at least 12,000 years, Native people and cultures are integral to the fabric of Seattle’s urban experience. Largely written from a Western perspective, the recorded history and common understanding of Seattle’s indigenous people is often limited to the past, overlooking the continued contributions by Native people to present-day society and culture. In the mid-20th century, a renaissance within the Seattle urban Native community brought new opportunities for Native people to speak out, be heard, and reclaim their history and identity through a Native lens.

This spirit continues to bring forth social change through art and advocacy, empowering Native people to recount stories of strength and struggle from the past, and voicing issues that face the Native community today. Indigenous Futures celebrates artists, activists, and creative thinkers in the Pacific Northwest envisioning the future of this place.
