2016 Indigenous Peoples Day

Last year, the Steve Griggs Ensemble presented Listen to Seattle at Town Hall on Indigenous Peoples Day. The program featured stories about the Duwamish Tribe and Duwamish river. Duwamish tribal member James Rasmussen joined the ensemble to speak to the audience about the history and clean up of the Duwamish river Superfund site. Duwamish tribal chairwoman Cecile Hansen introduced the program and Chief Seattle descendent Ken Workman spoke in Lushootseed to describe the connection between nature and people.
