19th Annual NAYA Gala & Auction

The NAYA Family Center Annual Gala and Auction is the largest celebration of National Native American Heritage Month in the Pacific Northwest, bringing together Native leaders, elected officials, business owners, community members, and all those dedicated to the lifetime success of our youth and families.
After three years away, we are thrilled to announce the 19th Annual Gala & Auction will be returning to the beautiful Portland Art Museum on November 11, 2022!
We invite you to join us in-person or online, as we celebrate in true NAYA fashion! Our celebration this year will include live performances, a delicious first foods inspired meal, and our signature auctions featuring a gorgeous selection of Native American art from across the nation. Get your tickets or register for our virtual program today!
In addition to helping raise awareness of our region’s Native community, the Annual NAYA Gala and Auction also raises crucial unrestricted revenue that allows us to directly support and expand our continuum of life-affirming programs and services, impacting more than 10,000 individuals each year.
