July 8, 2016 at 7:00pm – Honor Totem (56 min, Ian Devier, 2014)
HONOR TOTEM “This poignant documentary chronicles the John T. Williams Memorial Totem Pole project as a catalyst for healing and justice. The community art project rose from the August 2010 fatal police shooting of Williams, a First Nations woodcarver. The shooting sparked an outcry that extended beyond the city of Seattle and the native community. The slain man’s older brother Rick Williams chose a peaceful response through an ambitious endeavor to carve a 34-foot totem pole in honor of the Williams family’s artistic legacy and the memory of one of its most talented carvers.” (from https://www.seattlechannel.org/CommunityStories.)
