Seattle Celebrates Native American Heritage Month

Mayor's Proclamation

City Council Proclamation

Thanks to the dedicated footwork of CANOES, the City of Seattle’s Native American Employees Association, the City of Seattle is honoring its Native American citizens and culture and celebrating Native American Heritage Month.  Both Mayor Mike McGinn and the City Council have proclaimed November as Native American Heritage Month.  Councilmember Bruce Harrell, who chairs the Council’s Civil Rights Committee, sponsored the Council’s action.  Both Mayor McGinn and Councilmember Harrell joined hundreds of City Employees on November 2nd for the City’s annual Native American Heritage celebration at City Hall (sponsored by CANOES).  Both were honored with blankets at the event which also featured drumming, storytelling, a salmon chowder feast, and a panel on the Boldt decision.
