Learning Right Relations, Olympia
Greetings to all!
This will be a short message to alert you to our Gathering next Sunday, April 22, again at the Friends Meeting House from 1 - 4 pm. Our message begins with a special salute to the Friends community for their gracious and effective hosting of our recent Gatherings! The chief presenter will be Connie McCloud, Director of Culture of the Puyallup Tribe of Indians and leader of the Tribe's Canoe Family. She will show and speak about the movie "Glwa--Resurgence of the Ocean-Going Canoe", which actually was filmed in preparation for and during the 2016 Paddle to Nisqually.
I now turn to a salute to Ami Aiki, one of our ever-present LRR participants, for her kind response to some of my troubles with Comcast's mail address program. She followed through with an offer to connect us to the mailing platform called MailChimp, which you are now experiencing. Please join me in saluting Ami!
Let me finish this short message with an invitation to those who already have a sign-up petition for YES ON 1631 (anti-pollution measure) to bring it along for others to sign. This petition was given a lot of attention at last Saturday's well-attended and applauded Thurston Climate Action Team Convention at the Lacey campus of SPSCC.
This Sunday, Puyallup Canoe Family Elder Connie McCloud will share the story of the upcoming Power Paddle to Puyallup 2018, including the history of the Puyallup Tribe's participation in the Canoe Journeys.
Connie McCloud is culture director of the Puyallup Tribe of Indians and leader of the Puyallup Tribe Canoe Family. Connie has spent decades preserving the legacy of her people of the South Sound.
