Native American heritage: Good news for Daybreak Star

What wonderful news! [“Snoqualmie Tribe donating $150,000 to Daybreak Star Center,” Local News, Feb. 4]

I visited the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center in Seattle’s Discovery Park some years ago and was disappointed to see it struggling then. As a center for Native American art and culture, Daybreak Star has been doing its best to keep alive our valuable indigenous heritage, a benefit to not only local Native Americans, but to all residents of Seattle and tourists, too. It also provides much-needed social services to Native Americans.

If $150,000 isn’t a healthy enough infusion of funds to help Daybreak Star become all that it is meant to be, perhaps some of the other Washington state tribes who operate profitable casinos can up the ante. The people who serve at and are served by the center deserve it.
