In celebration of the Association on American Indian Affairs’ 100th anniversary (1922-2022), the Association is honored to announce the first annual Tribal Museums Day to be held on Saturday, December 3, 2022. We are engaging Tribal Museums and Cultural Centers across Indian Country to share our collective wisdom, values and diverse cultures!
The Association’s vision is to create a world where diverse Native cultures and values are lived, protected and respected. Tribal Museums Day will bring attention to our diverse Nations and cultures, stimulate tourism, and grow Tribal economies. Tribal Museums Day will also support the vision and mission of each Tribal Museum by re-educating the public that our Nations are the primary experts of Indigenous histories, knowledge, cultures, lifeways and values.

Communities of Color Coalition
Organizational and self-identified community leaders of color across Washington are cordially invited to join us virtually on Saturday, December 3rd, 10:00 AM -1:00 PM, to represent their organizations or communities and identify shared legislative priorities.
In the spirit of strengthening communities furthest from justice and in alignment with the goals of the Members of Color Caucus’ (Senate, House, LBC), the POCLS is transitioning its leadership to a more BIPOC collective led process. This is in alignment with national movements on centering this work within racial equity and systemic changes with the urgency that solutions (and those who can make change happen) exist already within BIPOC communities and its respective multigenerational leadership. Our new leadership comes from previous Summit participants, alongside community leaders/organizations already doing this work within WA State. We are excited about the transition and welcome those interested to be involved or provide feedback to ensure that this event/process is continually centering voices left out of critical decision making.
One of our core priorities (and lessons learned in previous years) is that we, as a BIPOC community led process, want to establish evaluation and accountability measures to ensure our issues are prioritized and tracked by our elected officials. We are growing our volunteer bill tracking team and welcome participants of the summit to help champion issues at the legislature to ensure our collective priorities are not left behind.
