Indigenous Peoples' Day Celebrations in the Seattle area!

October 11, 2019

In 2014, the Seattle City Council approved of a resolution that named the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples’ Day to acknowledge and honor the history and culture of our Indigenous communities. Here at Eighth Generation we're stoked about celebrating Indigenous Peoples' Day 2019, so we thought we'd share some awesome events you can attend and tune in around the Seattle area. Our Pike Place Market Store will also be open on Indigenous Peoples Day! Check out the events below.
