Xwe' chi' eXen is a sacred landscape of the Lummi Nation, where they have lived for 3500 years. It is also the proposed terminal location and shipping point for the export of the Powder River Basin coal to China.
Jay Julius, Lummi tribal council member, shared the tribe's concerns with me walking along the beach at Cherry Point several weeks ago.
