Ira Coyne, Chauncey Peltier share about the Mural dedicated to Leonard Peltier October 11th, 2015 at 5pm

A local sign painter and muralist in Olympia, Ira Coyne, heard Chauncey interviewed by Raven Redbone on his show Make No Bones About it on KAOS radio. When Ira learned Leonard was a painter, he looked up his work and was taken by the pink lion depicted in Stalking. He then reached out to Raven and Chauncey to turn this piece into a mural at our city’s artesian well. Chauncey is now in Olympia for the week to work on the mural with Ira and anyone else who shows up at the well to lend a hand. (The official ribbon cutting for the mural will coincide with Olympia’s Inaugural Indigenous Peoples Day, this Monday October 12, at 12:00 pm by Olympia’s Artesian Well.)
