Happy new year!

Happy New Year from Thomas Sewid and Sasquatch Island!

I have great memories of Chief Lelooska and the performances that brought the NW coast cultures to life. The first time I saw Don Lelooska and family perform was at a school program in the old long house in Ariel. I was in the third grade at Battle Ground Elementary School. That was in 1966 or about 58 years ago. I’ve taken my family and friends to performances many times since then.

Amazing

That's really something. Had to look twice so to speak.

He was a big part of my childhood growing up in Kalama….wonderful human being.

I was so lucky to have met him and his family

Treasure ❤️

I loved going to his story telling with masks as a child. Our older daughter did as well. Unfortunately, I can only tell our grandchildren about his legacy as they live too far to experience it themselves. Some of my best childhood memories!

He was a unique individual who taught me many things. I am fortunate to be surrounded by his carvings and those of his family. My life has been enriched by Don, Patty Fawn, Tsungani, Richard, Shona-Hah, Fearon, and all who have worked to keep the traditions alive. Thank you.

What a great guy. He is missed!

A most underrated, unrecognized, inspirational human being. I was lucky enough to take two classes from him in the longhouse.

One in a million!! I remember a college student who was angry he had to take a required class with him. Angrier still when he found out it was only answering questions people asked! In the end he said it was the most inspiring class he had ever taken!! There was no one like Chief Lelooska. I remember he would just walk out in the midst of a noisy room of children and they all be quiet instantly!! I miss his incredible presence, although I feel it sometimes in your presentations ….watching in love and appreciation for continuing to share your heritage!
