This week on the Compass, we reprise our coverage of two special days in June 2019, when ceremonies brought acknowledgement of several thousand years of rich social and religious indigenous culture, ownership and rejection of past intolerance by the white man, and the opportunity to educate citizens and visitors alike about the relationship between the ‘SKlallam People and the European settlers who came to occupy this special place the ‘Sklallams called the village of Qatay. A 30-foot totem arrived at the foot of Water Street, and the Cheech-ma-han Trail was dedicated and embraced by the community. Join us as we revisit some of the sounds, voices and music of these two celebratory days.
