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 from 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.
