Dear Friend and Supporter,

You are probably not checking our Kickstarter page as obsessively as we are so perhaps you haven't heard: With 15 days left in the campaign, we are over the 50% line as we move toward our goal! Hip Hip Hooray!

We wanted you to know because it is your confidence in us and your generosity that have made it possible for us to get this far so quickly.

Right now Sharon and I are working hard to reach out to the following groups of people:

  • Any media people who have written, blogged or spoken about Indigenous Knowledge; First Nations or Native Americans; and photography, especially portraiture and/or black-and-white photography.
  • People like you in the Seattle area who would like to attend our upcoming Kickstarter Networking event on Saturday, March 18th, 1:30 to 4:30 pm on the 29th Floor of the Smith Tower (506 2nd Ave, downtown Seattle) and support this Kickstarter!
  • Anyone who would like to write a short article about "In Their Hands:The Keepers of the Box of Treasures" for LinkedIn's Pulse (Pamela has a template if you need one. Email her at DosPolacasOnLummi@gmail.com.)

We're down to the last two weeks so we're cranking up the energy to make sure this book gets finished, published and distributed.

Thank you for everything you do.

Hope to see you next Saturday if you're in the Seattle area!

Take care,

Pamela and Sharon
