Supporting community initiatives is a key focus for both organizations, and the Seahawks plan to partner with the Muckleshoot Tribe on vital programs such as elder health and youth leadership development. 

The partnership also includes entitlement of CenturyLink Field’s North Plaza to be named Muckleshoot Plaza. Fans will see elements of the partnership at stadium events throughout the year, including artwork to showcase the rich history of the Tribe, as well as on Seahawks gamedays through annual tribal dance performances.
