This August, Master Carver Jewell James will be creating another Totem Pole and Journey. This year's Totem Pole will eventually find it's home in Northern Cheyenne territory in Montana. North Cheyenne land is part of the Powder River Basin where coal companies are working to expand existing and create new coal mining projects, which would be shipped out through Gateway Pacific Terminal at Cherry Point if the project is not stopped.
In order the Journey to happen, we need to raise $28,000. This Journey belongs to all of us, not just Lummi House of Tears Carvers or Lummi Nation. Go to the funding site, read on this Journey and previous Journeys and then donate. Click here.
