Honoring our Community Leaders
In recognition of their contributions to our community and dedication toward the health of Native people, the Seattle Indian Health Board honored the following leaders at the 2018 Adeline Garcia Community Services Awards Banquet:
- Marilyn Scott, Vice Chair, Upper Skagit Tribe
- Steve Kutz, Chair, American Indian Health Commission
- Colleen EchoHawk-Hayashi, Executive Director, Chief Seattle Club
The event was held in the Northern Lights Dome room of The Arctic Club Hotel. Commissioned in 1916, the Arctic Club was originally a social club for men returning from the Yukon gold rush who struck it rich. The building has been historically preserved, with fine Alaska marble covers in the main corridors and terra cotta walrus head statues running around the third floor exterior. The club's elegant interior once held a ladies tea room, private dining rooms, billiard and card rooms, a bowling alley, a barber shop, and a private roof garden. The formal dining room - the Northern Lights Dome - was always the focal point of the club.
Original art was created live at the event by Native artist Roger Fernandes (Lower Elwha) and was auctioned to banquet guests. The proceeds from the event supported the Seattle Indian Health Board’s Community Services Programs.
