WE were honored to work with photographer Sharon Eva Grainger in capturing the story line, photos and writing the captions for the Lummi Nation in the Living Cultures Exhibit at Seattle Central Library. "The exhibit combines Native American and First Nations Regalia, historic photographs by Edward S. Curtis and contemporary photographs by Grainger of the Tlingit, Haida, Kwakwaka’wakw and Lummi Nations. This exhibit celebrates the Indigenous peoples of the Northwest Coast photographed by Edward S. Curtis in the early 1900s. The exhibit goes “beyond the frame” and expresses that today, Indigenous peoples continue to resiliently move forward, carrying cultural traditions passed to them from their elders, delicately combining this important cultural foundation with the ever changing worlds that are a part of their lives."
Whiteswan Environmental relies on donations from the community to make this vision a reality.
