Totem on the grounds at Wa He Lut Indian School, Frank’s Landing.
The school is located near the apex of the Nisqually delta and estuary, which adjoins the Puget Sound. The name, Wa He Lut, comes from a Nisqually warrior and medicine man whose power flowed from thunder and lightning. Wa He Lut Indian School was founded in 1974 by T. Maiselle Bridges and members of the Frank's Landing Indian Community. Their vision for the school was to ensure that Native American children would get funding for the education they were promised in the Medicine Creek treaty.
