From 1 to 5 pm Sunday, February 14, 2016, the Duwamish Longhouse will host a celebration of “Salmon Is Life,” a Paris-based event. Featured will be art-making, music, slides, videos and “flying the salmon.”
This Valentine’s Day, come celebrate love of Salmon and the Earth that inspired our actions in Paris.
Be lifted by music, stories, images and video of Salmon is Life: Wisdom of the Heart.
For closing, please join us in lifting as many Salmon as we can to dance in the air.
“It’s Valentine’s Day! Let’s Spawn more heart-centered actions that speak for the Salmon People and care for the Circle of Life.”
– Paul Cheoketen Wagner
There will be snacks available. Please bring your favorites if you’d like.
Hands-on art: Batik* prayer flags together. Some flags will go to Paris, to the neighborhood where the terrorist attacks happened on 11/13/15; some will stay in Seattle. *Batik was used to make the Salmon windSockeyes. Also, salmon hat making for children.
2:30- 4:00 pm
Stories and song: Hear stories from our trip and listen to wisdom teachings from the Saanich people. Paul Cheoketen Wagner will play flute songs, along with the salmon. Help us fly hundreds of salmon around the Longhouse!
Open Salon: Informal conversations, videos and more art-making.
Let’s make sure what happened in Paris doesn’t stay in Paris!
Salmon is Life is a project of 350Seattle.
