Fatherhood is Sacred Program 2023

Snoqualmie Indian Tribe Culture Department


The Fatherhood is Sacred Program offers participants the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of responsible fatherhood as reflected in Native American values and beliefs. This is a six-week course to provide culturally relevant materials to teach fathers and father figures of Native American children how to be responsibly involved in their child’s life and the vital impact it has on their family.

All sessions will occur from 5 PM – 7 PM at the Snoqualmie Tribal Center.

Snoqualmie Tribal Center
9575 Ethan Wade Way SE
Snoqualmie, WA 98065

A meal will be shared at each session and attending participants will receive a gas stipend. Each class size is limited to 20. Due to the nature of the discussion topics we prefer that children are not present at the classes. There will be a celebration of completion that fathers and father figures will be able to attend with their children.

For questions, please contact the Culture Department by email at culture@snoqualmietribe.us or call Wayne Graika at 425-449-6630.
