The River That Made Seattle
August 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
In this livestreamed conversation with Duwamish Tribal member James Rasmussen and Duwamish River Cleanup Coalition Executive Director Paulina Lopez, author BJ Cummings talks about her own story and what drew her to the river’s history. She draws from her book The River That Made Seattle: A Human and Natural History of the Duwamish to show both historical and contemporary photos of the river, and create a compelling narrative portraying the people and conflicts that shaped the culture and natural environment. Cummings, Rasmussen, and Lopez answer questions about the history of the Duwamish, and invite us to action on aligning decisions about the river and its future with values of collaboration, respect, and justice.
