WHERE: Shoshone Bannock Casino Hotel
Join the Shoshone-Bannock Tribes and the House of Tear Carvers for a special event on May 18th at the Shoshone-Bannock Casino Hotel. In support of the Indigenous-led movement to remove the Snake River dams and restore to health the Snake River salmon runs and the Southern Resident Killer Whales (Skali’Chelh in the Lummi language) that depend on them, the Spirit of the Waters Totem Pole Journey aims to inspire, inform, and engage Pacific Northwest communities through intergenerational voices, ceremony, art and science, spirituality, ancestral knowledge, and cross-cultural collaboration.
Through creative communication, the journey promotes the urgent need for unity and solidarity to remove the Snake River dams to save our iconic Pacific Northwest salmon and Southern Resident orcas. We hope you can join us!
