Red Road to DC – A Totem Pole Journey
July 1, 2021 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The House of Tears Carvers cordially invite you to our visit and blessing ceremony at the Shoshone-Bannock Casino Hotel on Thursday, July 1 from 10:00 am- 11:00 am MDT, hosted by the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes, as we continue our journey to draw attention and action to sacred places and Indigenous rights.
This summer, the House of Tears Carvers of the Lummi Nation are transporting a 24-foot totem pole they carved from Washington State to Washington D.C. As this pole travels it draws lines of connection–honoring, uniting and empowering communities working to protect sacred places. It carries the spirit of the lands it visits and the power and prayers of communities along the way.
In July, the delivery of a totem pole from Lummi carvers and spiritual leaders to the new Administration, along with events in Washington, D.C., will be the summit of a cross-country tour connecting twenty of the country’s Native-led struggles where sacred lands, waters, and wildlife are imperiled by dams, climate change, and extractive industries.
