Children of The Setting Sun


"Keep My Fires Burning!"

In the 1930’s my Great Grandfather, Frank Hillaire, formed a Lummi song and dance troupe named, “Children of the Setting Sun.” Before passing, my great grandfather left these instructions to his descendants, “Keep My Fires Burning!” As my grandparents and parents before me, we continue to follow these instructions.
