A FREE VERY FAMILY-FRIENDLY EVENT

Interfaith Works collaborates with Learning Right Relations and Justice Washington to welcome the House of Tears Carvers from the Lummi tribe as they embarked on a cross-country voyage to deliver a totem pole to President Biden. The totem pole journey, known as the “Red Road to DC’’, made stops at numerous sacred sites, including Bears Ears, Chaco Canyon, Black Hills, Standing Rock.
This event was an outdoor gathering at Percival Landing for a ceremony that featured prayers and messages from regional tribal leaders, reflections from the carvers, and an interfaith, community blessing of the totem pole and the carvers themselves.
