The Duwamish Longhouse is sponsoring a monthly Duwamish Native Art & Crafts Market (Sept.-Dec.) to support and promote local Native American artists representing a board range of tribal traditions. It is a chance to meet the artists. Unique items in every price range. Snacks: soup of day and more. Free admission and parking for shoppers. |
Opened in 2009, the Longhouse is a traditional cedar post and beam structure designed in the Puget Salish Longhouse style. It houses a Native Art Gallery, Duwamish History Museum, Gift Shop, Duwamish Tribal Offices, and traditional Longhouse. As in ancient times, Longhouse is the site where tribal business is conducted and cultural & educational events are held.
It is the first Duwamish Longhouse built since the last one was burned down in West Seattle in 1894 to push the Duwamish off their land. In 1851, there were over 90 Duwamish Longhouses. Open Tuesday-Saturday, 10am-5pm.
Admission to the market is free and open to the public. For booth space information contact:
