Letter from Se Sealth (Jewell James)
Dear Friends & Relatives,
We are the House of Tears Carvers. In 2021, we are celebrating our 20th Anniversary of the Totem Pole Journey in the Spirit of Healing, Honor, Hospitality, Respect and Protection.
Our elder, Tom Sampson of Vancouver Island in 2002 reminded us, ‘The totem pole isn’t what is Sacred. It’s the gathering of the people around the Pole -- that is what is Sacred.’ he said.
This year we invite you to share in this sacred moment, as we prepare for our national tour: The Red Road to DC Totem Pole Journey to Protect Sacred Sites • July 13th thru August 4, 2021.
We are organizing a grassroots Pacific Northwest (April 19-May 24) & West Coast Totem Tours -- and we’d love to come to your community.
We understand if we can’t come due to Covid-19 restrictions, be rest assured, all of our gatherings will abide by safety measures of mask-wearing, socially distancing and hand sanitizing.
Hyshqe Si’am for your attention to this matter. Feel free to contact our NW Road Manager, Sul ka dub Freddie Lane: (360) 391-7560 for scheduling details.
Our northwest tour was not originally planned, [but the Totem Pole is on the truck and now on the move.]
Should you be moved to give to our cause, the Lhaq’temish Foundation is accepting donations on our behalf.
You can call me anytime at:
(360) 441-7790. We come in peace.
Jewell ‘Praying Wolf’ James
