Join us for an evening of stories from resilient and powerful Indigenous women!
These stories will be told by Native women, resisting the colonial mindset and forging new pathways that are rooted in the ancient traditions of our ancestors. Modern expressions of the visions of those who have gone before, reclaiming what was lost and reframing for the generations to come.
The stories have been curated by Colleen Echohawk-Hayashi and Abigail Echo-Hawk. Proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Chief Seattle Club and the Urban Indian Health Institute (UIHI).

About the Urban Indian Health Institute:
Urban Indian Health Institute (UIHI), a division of the Seattle Indian Health Board, is a national Tribal Epidemiology Center that provides assistance to indigenous organizations serving American Indians and Alaska Natives living in urban settings. UIHI recognizes research, data and evaluation as an indigenous value. We utilize the strengths of western science but remain grounded in indigenous values as we conduct research and evaluation, collect and analyze data, and provide disease surveillance. Our goal is to decolonize data and conduct our work for indigenous people, by indigenous people.
About the Chief Seattle Club:
The Chief Seattle Club is a 501©3 registered organization dedicated to physically and spiritually supporting American Indian and Alaska Native people. At our center in the Pioneer Square district of downtown Seattle, we provide food, medical support, housing assistance, the Urban Indian Legal Clinic, a Native art program and gallery, frequent outings to tribes, pow wows, and museums, and much more.
The Chief Seattle Club exists to provide sacred space to nurture, affirm and renew the spirit of urban Native people. The Chief Seattle Club is a human service agency that provides for the basic needs of their members, many of whom are experiencing homelessness. Over 90,000 meals are served every year and members can access quality nursing care, mental health providers, chemical dependency professionals and traditional healing practices. Native people in urban areas face unique challenges and the Chief Seattle Club embraces the cultures, languages, and traditions of American Indians and Alaska Natives as the primary method for healing and transformation.
