"... Listen to the elders ..." / Douglas James (Sit ki kadem) / "O, the great sky!"

It was well worth my time to listen to everything Douglas James, Lummi elder, has to say.

If you don't have time to listen to all Douglas James has to say, click above for the short film that comes after he speaks and listen to Bill Tsi'li'xw James, hereditary chief of the Lummi people.


O, the great sky! 

(from "Silent Spring," by Denise Levertov)

We would do well to listen more to the elders.

You have such a rich heritage and wisdom right there from your native people.
