Our indigenous-led Women’s Wellness Program is centered on ancestral practices and traditional knowledge. We bring together our collective knowledge of healing and well-being born in our love for our communities. Join us in preserving and sharing our ancestral practices and helping our communities thrive.

All Are Welcome
We invite you to join the Unkitawa family and participate in our events.
Our Women’s Wellness Program primarily serves native communities in the Pacific Northwest, many of whom are far from their ancestral lands and communities. It is your hub for information, education, connection, and advocacy on behalf of indigenous peoples in institutional spaces.
Monthly Women’s Gatherings
Monthly community gatherings are a vital aspect of our Women’s Wellness Program. Join us each month for an evening steeped in Indigenous culture and community – as we learn from one another, laugh, love, converse, and enjoy a delicious dinner featuring First Foods prepared by our staff and volunteers. Each month, we complete a different cultural craft. Our past projects include ribbon skirts, shawls, dream catchers, belts, beaded keychains, indigenous earrings, painting, making traditional medicines with honey, and making Thanksgiving baskets which we gave to the community. A wide variety of women share their cultural craft and cooking talents to make every gathering unique,heartfelt, and memorable.
Day: Third Wednesday of each month
Time: 6:00 – 8:00 PM
