There is some pretty exciting stuff out here in the Northwest that you
might be interested in. For one, a historic restoration project locally is
integral to community restoration: A longhouse is being built by the Port
Gamble S'Klallam Indian Tribe. Use of cedar for house front poles wasn't
easy because logging since the 1850s has eliminated almost all of the cedar
trees big enough for that use. Salmon are disappearing, so fish to
celebrate and sustain are vanishing....

Contact Marie Herbert, Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe, 31912 Little Boston
Road, Kingston, Washington 98346

Phone 360-297-2646

Some great carving is associated with this project.
