Our Mission

Hummingbird Indigenous Family Services launched in 2019 with the mission of healthy Indigenous babies being born into healthy Indigenous families being supported by healthy Indigenous communities. Hummingbird is the first and only Indigenous agency in King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties to exclusively serve Indigenous babies and families from zero to three.

Our programs

Indigenous BirthKeepers
A full-spectrum doula program: we serve pregnant people throughout the perinatal period across the full spectrum of perinatal health needs. This includes support for pre-conception, pregnancy, birth, postpartum, and pregnancy loss or release.

The Nest
A Guaranteed Basic Income (GBI) to Indigenous pregnant people until their child’s third birthday. GBI has been shown to reduce perinatal mood disorders, increase self-efficacy, and result in better birth outcomes.
Storytelling
We seek to offer storytelling as a way of healing internalized narratives and to re-create the stories of poverty and Indigeneity vis-à-vis colonization into stories that depict Indigenous pregnancy, parenting, and motherhood on their own terms.
Pilimakua Family Connections
We provide Indigenous-centered services to support the physical, social-emotional, cognitive, and cultural health of the child and whole family. We offer Home Visiting, Parents Groups, Community Connection Events, & Emotional Peer Support. For Indigenous families with expected babies, new babies, and young children (0-3 years old).
