A large crowd gathers at Northwest Indian College to welcome a healing pole created by Lummi carver Jewell James and the House of Tears carvers, Friday, Sept. 27. The pole was carved in opposition to the proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal; the potential site of which Lummi leaders say is a sacred home of their ancestors as well as an important present-day fishing area.
