On Saturday May 22nd, the Totem Pole Journey team and the House of Tears Carvers brought the #RedRoadtoDC totem pole to the streets of Seattle for two events and blessing ceremonies as part of the Red Road West Tour, which offers communities an opportunity to visit the pole before it embarks on the Red Road National Journey to DC. The events brought together Indigenous and settler residents of the city named for Chief Sealth, whom the James family of carvers are partially descended. Please share in the sites and sounds of these two events below, alongside press coverage from the Seattle Times.
