Native Story Teller to Speak in Everett
Last updated 6/13/2018 at Noon
Paul Cheokten Wagner will be the featured speaker at the June 25 meeting of the local climate activist group 350 Everett.
Wagner, of the Saanich First Nations, is a traditional storyteller, an award-winning Native American flutist and longtime climate activist. He was the founder of Winter Shelter, the “Tarpee,” for the Standing Rock protest against the trans Canadian pipeline in North Dakota.
Wagner shares traditional songs and stories of the Coast Salish peoples. His message is that the world is facing the end of a stable climate and the destruction of clean water in only a few hundred years and that we must learn from the past and work toward a cooperative and peaceful future.
The June 25 meeting of 350 Everett is at the Everett United Church of Christ, 2624 Rockefeller Ave., at 6:30 p.m.
350 Everett is a local chapter of the national group 350.org, which has a mission work to empower a dynamic activist movement in the United States to fight for the solutions to the climate crisis that science and justice demand.
350.org works at the grassroots level to solve the climate crisis.
