This in from the Quileute Nation:
“Tinsel Korey who portrays Emily in the Twilight Saga:New Moon leaves the Quileute Nation today to begin filming Eclipse in Vancouver. Korey spent a week on the Quileute reservation in LA Push, WA teaching acting classes for the K-12 Tribal School and raising funds for the school with an appearance on First Beach with legendary Quileute Elder Chris Morganroth.
The character Emily is actually from the Makah tribe, so Korey also traveled to Neah Bay to speak with the youth and Elders of the Makah Nation. Tinsel was welcomed by the Makah with an honoring ceremony and given a flag to their nation.
“In true native tradition, she is doing what our ancestors & elders have taught us to do for centuries” states Chairwoman Carol Hatch, “Tinsel is giving back and sharing her gifts and talents with our Native youth.”
“Tinsel now knows were Emily and the “Wolf Boys” live and has walked the shores of First Beach, she can take that spiritual energy with her to the set.” states Quileute publicist Jackie Jacobs.
“Tinsel is bringing awareness to the real Quileute and Makah Nations. That is very honorable, generous and respectful. She is alway “Welcome” to come back anytime.”
