Kwel’ Hoy, Opening Ceremony, April 24, 2018

Kwel-Hoy-Weblink

Kwel’ Hoy is an exhibition that connects communities protecting water, land, and our collective future.

The exhibition, created by the Natural History Museum, includes a hand crafted totem pole on a journey from the Lummi Nation of the Pacific Northwest, a stone altar initiated by members of the Ramapough Lenape Nation, and stories of local peoples and their struggles to protect their homes from fossil fuel development.

OPENING CEREMONY: APRIL 24, 6:00-8:30 PM

Enjoy songs, brief talks, and art both indoors and outside of the Watershed Center during this free opening celebration.

Over the last 6 years, the House of Tears Carvers of the Lummi Nation has transported a totem pole across North America to communities threatened or impacted by fossil fuel projects. As the pole travels, it draws a line between dispersed but connected concerns, building an unprecedented alliance of tribal and non-tribal communities as they stand together to advocate for a sustainable relationship between humanity and the natural world.

The totem pole journey demonstrates that struggles are connected and in unity there is strength. Drawing a line in the sand, it joins communities together as one front in the collective struggle for a safe and sustainable future.
