Very Beloved Relatives, Friends, and Allies of the Nawtsamaat Alliance,
Greetings once again! We hope this message finds you in all the beauty, wonder, and goodness of the Great Spirit.
Last Sunday’s Gathering to Protect the Sacredness of the Salish Sea left us each in a state of total awe and of humbling gratitude. As we continue to reflect about the remarkable occasion - in which over 350 relatives from all walks of life gathered in the calling to do good in Unprecedented, Unified Action - our hearts are filled with hope.
Our deepest thanks and most heartfelt blessings go out to each of you. Thank you! Together, as Nawtsamaat, “One House. One Heart. One Prayer,” a force for goodness is emerging with the gale of ten thousand voices, whose words shall be sung by the next 7 generations and beyond. Nawtsamaat, our legacy, shall be known in the hearts of every being who calls this remarkable place home.
We will Protect it. We will Restore it. And we will win.
Learn with us as we tell stories, dig deep and ask big questions in this work, and connect and learn with one another in these powerful times. Learn about the Salish Sea Marine Sanctuary as a way to protect and restore the Salish Sea, the 4 Days of Action, and the International Treaty to Protect the Sacredness of the Salish Sea.
Participants are encouraged to go to the Treaty signing at Tsleil-Waututh Nation the next day.
