“Amazing Center with December art show”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

Discovery Park was created in the early 1970s after the majority of Fort Lawton, an army post, was given to the city of Seattle. Daybreak Star Cultural Center was created on 20 acres of that land, as an urban base for Native Americans in the Pacific Northwest.

I went on Dec. 21, 2013 during a two-day winter festival of crafts, food, and dancing. There were Indian artists with their work for sale. Some was absolutely amazing, and they were all willing to talk about their work.

We could not stay for the food and dancing, but we did look at the permanent artwork upstairs plus a room with the history of how the center was created.

There have also been 27 (almost) annual Indian Days Pow Wows during the Seafair celebration in July. It was cancelled in 2012 because of lack of funds and the center has had financial problems. The center is can also be rented out for private celebrations.

I bought 12 (for $10 total) raffle tickets. The money went to support the senior food program.

I plan to go back in July.
