There is a beautiful sea of grass around Cherry Point that supports many life forms both large and small. The Lummi people call this area "Xwe' chi' eXen" or sacred land. This land is their heritage legally and spiritually. This land is now threatened by the proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal Project that, if actualized, I believe will destroy the cultural significance of this site, the sacred burial grounds, the fisheries and contaminate the land, water and air which is shared by all living beings.
The Lummi have asked for help in preserving and protecting this sacred land for now and for generations to come and we can do so by saying "yes" to the Lummi and "no" to the Gateway Pacific project.
