Yesterday, the Lummi Nation’s epic Totem Pole journey to raise awareness of the coal export terminals, coal mining, and Bakken/Tar sands oil exports came to Seattle. The pole will travel 6,000 miles starting from South Dakota to the Tar Sands stopping in impacted tribal and non-tribal communities along the way. Seattle marked its halfway point.
Master carver Jewell James (Lummi) reminded us all that now is the time for us to Warrior in protection of Mother Earth.
