      This installation is part of a project honoring Snoqualmie elder Xa-cha-blu, usually known as Marie Louie, born about 1800 in the village of Toltx, now the town of Carnation. She lived most of her life on the east shore of Lake Sammamish, and traveled by canoe and on foot between Seattle and the Cascade mountains. She helped Native and immigrant women in childbirth, gathering and administering plant medicines.

      It will remain in place throughout the rest of the summer.

      The installation was completed with the generous help of Pile King, who anchored the sculpture in the sand.
