We are the House of Tears Carvers. In 2021, we are celebrating our 20th Anniversary of the Totem Pole Journey in the Spirit of Healing, Honor, Hospitality, Respect and Protection. Our elder, Tom Sampson on Vancouver Island in 2002 reminded us, ‘The totem pole isn’t what is Sacred. It’s the gathering of the people around the Pole — that is what is Sacred.’ he said.
This year we invite you and your community to share in this sacred moment, as we prepare for our national tour: The Red Road to DC Totem Pole Journey to Protect Sacred Sites May 25th thru June 9th, 2021. We are organizing a grassroots Paciﬁc Northwest Tour (May 1-24). All of our gatherings will abide by safety measures of mask-wearing, socially distancing and hand sanitizing.
