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 the Kinder Morgan Transmountain Pipeline, with information about how to get involved. There will be a pop-up exhibit and video projections by The Natural History Museum in collaboration with Lummi Nation. Presenters and performers will thread together our hearts and minds because what moves us is also what motivates us.
