Lummi Totem Pole Journey Shows (October 2017) Oct 14 Seattle Oct 15 Tacoma Oct 16 Vancouver, WA Oct 17 Portland, OR
The House of Tears Carvers of the Lummi Nation will travel again across the western United States and Canada with a totem pole to bring attention to proposed fossil fuel terminals, pipelines, and other facilities and the threat they pose to tribes and local communities.
The journey follows the 2016 decision of the Corps of Engineers to deny the permit for the proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal coal terminal at Cherry Point based on its potential impacts on the treaty fishing rights of the Lummi Nation.
This tour, Kwel’Hoy, We Draw the Line!, will celebrate victories, commemorate alliances, and prepare for the coming battles as we work together for the protection of mother earth.
Join us in this unique, indigenous event that will connect us all to the local fights we face, like PSE's proposed LNG facility, with information about how to get involved. Presenters and performers will thread together our hearts and minds because what moves us is also what motivates us.
Dana will perform two songs at the Tacoma, Vancouver, WA and Portland, OR shows.
“The Great Salish Sea” is written from the perspective of the 104-year-old matriarch “Granny” of the resident orcas and depicts how the sounds of boats have changed over the last century, from Native American canoes to large sailing ships, and now to today’s giant freighters and tankers.
