The September 2022 Totem Pole Journey to the Clean Energy Justice Convergence in Pittsburgh, PA, is the latest of more than a dozen journeys made by the House of Tears Carvers of the Lummi Nation over the past 20 years to educate and advocate. This journey builds upon, strengthens and reaffirms the growing Indigenous-led climate justice movements that began with a successful campaign to oppose proposed fossil fuel projects in the Pacific Northwest.

Panelists – including Indigenous elders from the Pacific Northwest and environmental justice advocates from rural Appalachia and the Gulf South – will share their perspectives on the rapid expansion of “clean energy” solutions.
