If you care about ecology, environment justice or First Nations issues, don't miss the Totem Pole Journey

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.

The Totem Pole Journey is in its final day, today. They raised the main portion of the Totem Pole this morning at Beaver Lake Cree Nation up in Alberta Canada (https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10202557109193380&set=vb.1365677666&type=2&theater).

To see where the Journey has been and read and hear about what was shared and learned, you can check our the Journey’s web/blog site at totempolejourney.com and the Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/totempolejourney.

Its been a long Journey for our crew and we’re waiting anxiously to welcome them back home!

there are many reasons to oppose coal and oil trains traveling across Washington State. Coal contaminates the air as it passes through communities. Oil can ignite, burning any object close by. Of special concern is the problem if oil spills into the water, whether it is fresh or salt water. The contamination doesn’t go away. Our Lummi brothers and sister know how much damage these fuels can cause. I join them in their sorrow.
