Lummi Way of Life

Published: August 29, 2013, Author: JayTaber

As noted in their August 2 press release, Lummi Nation observes that Lummi Indians maintain the largest Native fishing fleet in the United States, and that Lummi fishers have worked in the Cherry Point fishery for thousands of years. Impairment of that crab, herring and salmon fishery by the proposed Gateway Pacific Terminal would thus violate the treaty between the United States Government and Lummi Nation. As noted in an article at San Juan Journal, Lummi leaders Jewell James and Jeremiah Julius intend to make these points known through a 1,500-mile totem journey from the Powder River Basin in Wyoming and Montana to the ancient Lummi village and burial ground at Cherry Point.
