RIP George. Certainly not forgotten.
What about light bulbs? What are we supposed to do with all these mercury filled light bulbs?
Well said. It´s sad how a people´s voice and power can be so swayed and controlled by just and small handful.
Totem pole, totem hole!!!??? Is this a mockery? I see no representation of Chief Garry or the people. Where´s the salmon? Where´s the fishermen? Where´s the falls, the roots and the root diggers? Where´s the huckleberries, the upright stove pipe? Where is any of it? Where did this design come from? What happened to the great concepts submitted by local native artists like Flett, Hill and Gendron? This modern interpretation is supposed to represent the people from the Spokane Tribe? I´m a tribal member and none of the tribal members I know ever saw this design nor were we ever given the opportunity to vote on it. This mockery has as much representation of Chief Garry as the existing totem pole that has already taken his place at the park. Is this really how this thing ends? Chief Garry will be lost and forgotten, buried in some archive at the Mac. If this is erected we should change the name of the park. I do not support this project and would actually drive out of my way so I wouldn´t have to pass it or the park. Sincerely, Spokane Tribal Member Jeff Ferguson
