“Lummi Nation, Orca Network, Sierra Club and many others will journey to Miami with Tokitae Totem Pole”

“The Lummi Nation, through the Nation’s House of Tears Carvers, will begin May 9, 2018 on a journey with a 16′ Killer Whale totem pole and two, 8′ Seal Poles through events in seven cities to Miami, Florida on May 25 as part of its Salish Sea Campaign.

“It is a journey about the trauma and resilience of a killer whale: Tokitae, aka Lolita, and her home waters – the Salish Sea. When she is finally brought home from her small concrete tank in Miami Seaquarium to her Southern Resident “L-pod” after decades away she will go through a period of rehabilitation and rejoin her family for whom she still calls out nightly. She will represent a strengthening healing in body and spirit for her, for all of us, and for the sacred and endangered waters of the Salish Sea,” quoting The Tokitae Team at Orca Network.
