Blessings for the Journey — Blessing a Lummi Totem Pole

Friday, August 29, 11 am
Cathedral Lawn and Nave

Protecting the land, the water, and the peoples from fossil fuels.

Coal export, oil trains, and the toxic byproducts of fossil fuels threaten many tribal lands across the Americas. The Lummi Nation House of Tears carvers are creating a totem pole to raise up the voice of all threatened by fossil fuel transportation. They are journeying with this totem pole across the western United States and Canada to connect with local tribes, faith leaders, and environmental partners. The Lummi ask for blessing and protection of sacred lands and treaty rights, including their own ancestral village and treaty fishing waters at Cherry Point, WA.

Please join friends of faith and environment at the Seattle stop of this journey. Help bless the totem pole and stand with native peoples for the protection of creation.
