Podcast of Blessing Ceremony from today at Tulalip Bay by Matt Fuller

We are making our way south to Longview this afternoon after a beautiful Blessing Ceremony at Tulalip Bay with the Tulalip Tribes. Below is two voices from that event, former Vice-Chair Deborah Parker and community organizer Carlo Voli, as well as a link to some wonderful radio coverage from KBOO in Portland. We are hoping to see a lot of your supportive Oregon faces tomorrow in Portland! See the schedule above for more information about our stops as we make our way out to Lame Deer, MT and the Northern Cheyenne where we will have a ceremony to gift them this Totem Pole.
