Blessing for Totem Pole Journey 2016;
August 25, 3 pm-7:30 pm.
St Marks Cathedral

As you know, Earth Ministry has been deeply supportive of Native nations
fighting fossil fuel projects that damage their sacred sites, threaten
their treaty fishing rights, and exacerbate climate change.

A powerful expression of the shared advocacy among tribes, faith communities and enviormental activists has been Totem Pole Journeys.  This year Earth Ministry and St. Mark’s Cathedral will host a Seattle stop and blessing of this beautiful carving.  It is a time to  honor with  Native leaders our shared values at *the fourth Totem Pole Journey on August 25th.* This event celebrates the remarkable victory of treaty fishing rights at Xwe’chi’eXen, Cherry Point,  and commits us to continue our good work together for Mother Earth.

 Please join us for a gathering of prayer and blessing, a celebration of our
shared responsibility to protect our land and water, and a celebration of
many remarkable victories.  If you will, please pass the attached flyer
with details about this event to your respective communities, and  invite
them to celebrate with us.
