At the touch of a button, you can hear the voice of a Lum mi teenager speaking her tribe’s language: “New’ileng ne schaleche.” (Welcome, my friends and relatives.)

She and 10 other students recorded a series of words and phrases in the Lummi language, which can be heard at audio stations in the new permanent “People of the Sea and Cedar” exhibit in the Lightcatcher building at the Whatcom Museum in Bellingham, Washington.
