With new safety guidelines in place, Snoqualmie Casino is welcoming guests again to the entertainment capital of the Eastside. When you decide to visit Seattle’s closest casino, you’re probably expecting the wide selection of slot machines and table games, as well as delicious dining options inspired by award-winning chefs. You stay for the buzzing atmosphere, but before you leave, don’t forget to stop by the Sno Shoppe and discover the newest addition to Snoqualmie Casino.
The Snoqualmie Casino is proud to add Eighth Generation products to its signature gift shop. These products are known for showcasing Native American art and culture with quality products.
Eighth Generation was acquired by the Snoqualmie Tribe last fall. The company offers a variety of items including cotton and wool blankets, jewelry, scarves, bags and phone cases. Eighth Generation distinguishes itself from the mainstream commercialism found in other products that claim to be “Native-inspired.” The Snoqualmie Tribe’s goal is to support the company in its continued growth, providing an appropriate platform for Native artists to share their work with the world.
"By acquiring Eighth Generation last fall, the Snoqualmie Tribe was investing in the cultural values of the Snoqualmie People. It's important that tribal stories and culture are shared appropriately,” says Jaime Martin, Executive Director of Governmental Affairs and Special Projects for the Snoqualmie Indian Tribe. “While millions of dollars are spent in the United States on fake Native art labeled as 'Native-Inspired,' which misappropriates and disrespects the culture of Native people, the Tribe is supporting and expanding Eighth Generation as it provides consumers the opportunity to purchase culturally-appropriate art and home goods."
Eighth Generation’s carefully produced products are 100% Native designed, which distinguishes them from the “Native-inspired” products produced by other companies. As a tribally owned company that creates economic opportunities for Native artists, Eighth Generation’s work goes way beyond other companies. Its heart is in protecting the culture and history of Native Americans.
The next time you visit Snoqualmie Casino, take some time to look inside the Sno Shoppe and the high-quality Tribal products that are now available.
Snoqualmie Casino is open seven days a week and located just east of the intersection of I-90 and State Route 18. Come experience everything that Seattle’s closest casino has to offer.
