We cordially invite you to the Honoring Ceremony of Se Sealth, Jewell James, Lummi elder and head carver for the House of Tears Carvers on Saturday, May 28, 2022 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. at the Wexliem Community Center, 2100 Lummi View Drive, Lummi WA.
Since 2002, the House of Tears gifted totem poles across the country in healing, honor and protection starting with the surviving families of the victims of September 11th.
Jewell is world renowned for his work with indigenous peoples, testifying before the Senate Select Committee on Indian Affairs on treaty rights and has pleaded before the United Nations on the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous peoples in the early 2000s. After gifting a totem pole to the 46th President of the United States this past year, we feel moved in our hearts to honor our friend and brother for his leadership in the past 43 years.
