Totem Pole Journey to Protect Oak Flat
The Lummi House of Tears Carvers along with the Alliance of Earth, Sky & Water Protectors, Catskill Mountainkeeper and the Apache Stronghold welcome you to join their unified effort to bring awareness and prayers for Oak Flat, an Apache holy site. It is through generous contributions that help provide these campaigns internationally, inter-tribally and intergenerationally.
The Lummi House of Tears Carvers gratefully accept donations to help with fuel and food on their cross-country journey. They will join the Alliance of Earth, Sky & Water Protectors to defend traditional Apache lands from Resolution Copper a division of British-Australian mining giant Rio Tinto. According to Apache Stronghold founder Wendsler Nosie Sr., Resolution Copper’s mine will swallow the site in a massive crater and render “longstanding religious practices impossible.”
33 days , 41 stops, and 6497 miles. All stops and gatherings are free and open to the public.
