The Chief Seattle Club is a 501(c)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.
To create a welcoming place of support, acceptance and ceremony for Seattle's Native population.
