Video: What does it mean to be a Seattleite? And what does it take to become one?

A few months ago we asked you, our Evergrey readers, what questions you had for Seattle natives and transplants, and we got some really awesome responses.

Like this one for a transplant: Do you plan on Seattle being a long time home for you? Or this one for a native: What is the best way for me to integrate myself into the life of this city without diluting its culture?

Then we found a bunch of folks from across the city to answer those questions for us and pulled in some fascinating data about the civic health of our city from Seattle CityClub’s new Civic Health Index report.

The result?

The video above is the first in a series of videos that explore our relationship to the city and our relationships with each other – basically what The Evergrey is all about.

As Seattle continues to grow and change, we hope our Native/Transplant video series helps start conversations about where the city is headed and how we all – natives and transplants – can work together to ensure the best future for everyone.

And, to be clear, the responses you’re hearing from our video interviewees were taken from hours and hours of footage. Trust me, they all have a lot more to say on the topic. And we know you do too.

That’s why we want to hear from you. Each week we’ll share out your thoughts on the questions we pose to our interviewees.

So head to our Facebook page and tell us: What does it mean to be a Seattleite? And how do you become one?
