The Invisibles: Seattle’s Native Americans

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown March 7th, 2014 Last Updated on: March 7th, 2014

Matt Driscoll from Seattle Weekly News takes an in-depth look of what it's like to be a member of Seattle's urban Native community. For urban Natives it can be lonely when they're less than 1% of the overall population. Luckily there are services in the city for Natives looking to connect with each other such as Urban Native Education Alliance, the Clear Sky Youth Council, the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center, Red Eagle Soaring Native youth theater group and Longhouse Media.

Glad this was written it is a long overdue subject that is not a new thing or just recently happen.This has been an issue for a very long time and something that never has had much said or written about,The people who work with Natives know how bad this is,and how nobody in the public sector talks about,This is something the state and city need to address and help find solutions.
