Description: GCH assisted the Lummi Tribe in establishing a memorial and cultural museum on the Point at Semiahmoo. The site was the location of a tragic and accidental excavation, which revealed several layers of Native habitation and burial sites dating back thousands of years. The Lummi Tribe wished to honor their ancestors while bringing public awareness to the unfortunate event in hopes that it would never occur again in other locations.
