We Draw the Line: Lummi Totem Pole Event

October 15 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

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.
