Continuation of Daybreak Star Restoration for Sovereign Futures
In partnership with United Indians of All Tribes Foundation, Seattle Parks & Recreation, and community members, NIF will continue a project to restore surrounding land, waters, and gathering areas of Daybreak Star in Discovery Park to create a space for cultural preservation, learning, and activities for Native and Indigenous communities. Activities will focus on revitalizing land and plant life; installation of garden beds to preserve sacred foods and medicines, and continued park maintenance.
