Seattle SeaFair 2015

Welcome to Our Land

Welcome to Our Land

It is odd to think that a city named after a Native Chief would be holding their sixtieth SeaFair festival, and had never invited natives to participate in a position of honor. Well, times have changed and the 2015 version featured a “Welcome to Our Lands” segment of Native tribes in full regalia, canoes, drummers and singers, and great spirit. The Native segment drew loud and boisterous cheers throughout the two-and-a-half mile trek.

Council FIRE was in full view as the lead vehicle displayed our banner and carried Erich Bourgault (C-FIRE Exec VP), Anna Holla, Andy James and Jay Hollingsworth. We were extremely proud and humbled to be part of the event.

Special thanks to Kim Camara for her tireless good work in making it happen.
