On Friday, May 21, representatives from Sounders FC joined Tribal Council Vice Chairwoman Sylvia Miller and Councilmembers David Z. Bean, Annette Bryan, and Monica Miller for a tour of Chief Leschi Schools. They were treated to a breakfast made by the Indigenous Culinary class as part of our CTE pathways. The group also participated in Culture Day. During the celebration, Bean challenged former team captain Brad Evans, who now serves as the club’s brand ambassador, to the squirrel dance with students.
