Sacred Circle Gift Shop opens at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport

Published on : Thursday, February 14, 2019

Owned and operated by United Indians of All Tribes Foundation, Sacred Circle Gift Shop opens in Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in the main terminal on Concourse A.  The shop offers authentic, Native-designed items from Northwest Coast and Coast Salish, including jewelry, clothing and accessories, art, glassware and gifts.

 

 

 

As per Fred Felleman, Port of Seattle Commissioner, it is their first Native American-owned retail establishment. It is a reminder that the region’s rich cultural history is still very much a part of the contemporary art and culture.  It reinforces the Port’s commitment to increasing opportunities for small entrepreneurs, particularly women and minority-owned businesses.

 

 

 

Sacred Circle Gift Shop opens at Sea-Tac as part of the kiosk program, which offers short-term retail opportunities for qualified small, local retailers for six, 12, and 18-month lease terms. The Port maintains and provides the infrastructure in these spaces. The Port launched its kiosk program in 2012 to provide more flexible and less expensive options for new concessionaires interested in operating at the airport.

 

 

 

Mike Tulee said: “We are creating history with the Port of Seattle, and this opening aligns with our mission to reconnect Indigenous people in the Puget Sound region to their heritage by strengthening their sense of belonging and significance as Native people.”
