Se'Si'Le (saw-see-lah) is the Lummi language term for our grandmother. Respect for elders is central to Native life: to acknowledge Grandmother Earth is to invoke ancestral and cultural power. Founded by Lummi tribal member Jay Julius, Se’Si’Le reintroduces Indigenous spiritual law into the mainstream conversation about climate change and the environment.
Se'Si'Le brings to light the Indigenous worldview that human beings are part of, not separate from, Nature and Mother Earth. We are one.
Working with strategic partners, we deploy storytelling and policy analysis to provide a voice for the voiceless, including Salmon, Killer Whales, rivers, streams, the oceans and seas.
We provide Indigenous experience and perspective, and facilitate strategies for integrating ancestral knowledge into policies and over a broad range of projects.
Our customized workshops bring people and organizations into an understanding of Indigenous histories and worldview.
