audio excerpts from events along the Red Road to D.C

 

 

Voices from the Red Road to D.C.: Desiree Hellegers brings audio excerpts from events along the Red Road to D.C. In a journey and campaign to call attention to the need to protect Indigenous Sacred Spaces under threat from fossil fuel exploitation and dams that endanger fish runs, Lummi House of Tears carvers are transporting a 5,000 pound totem pole in a circuitous cross country journey from Washington State to Washington, D.C., stopping at sacred sites along the way. In D.C. the delegation will meet with Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, who will receive the totem pole, which will be installed outside the National Museum of the American Indian. You can follow along with the Red Road to D.C. on Facebook at Our Shared Responsibility: A Totem Pole Journey:https://www.facebook.com/totempolejourney
