Filmed in public at Lummi Nation, Salish political and spiritual leaders share their knowledge of traditional lifeways, carrying these ancestral teachings into the conversation on climate change.

The Earth is Alive: Huli Ta Tum Uhw shares ancestral teachings on Natural Law, Matrilineal Law, Power of the Giveaway and Pursuit of Spirit.

By sharing our cultural teachings through an engaging multimedia screening, live performance, and practice of traditional giveaway, event participants will experience some of the transformational power of our traditions in practice.
