2018 Totem Pole Journey – Tacoma Stop
May 11, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
For over 40 years, Tokitae has suffered apart from her family. It’s time to bring her home. Join us as we stand in solidarity with the Lummi tribe to bring her home.
In 2017, the Lummi Nation agreed to work with others to return the blackfish Tokitae (aka “Lolita”) back to her natal L-Pod that lives in the Salish Sea. In the late spring of 2019, the Lummi Nation will undertake a 24-day, 9,000 mile totem pole journey to Miami. We seek to bring her home.
This journey is part of the Lummi Nation’s campaign to secure her release from the Miami Seaquarium, and, in her reunion, allow her to both embody and inspire on-going efforts to restore and protect the Salish Sea.
Join us in our resistance. Let’s bring her home.
