Tribal Canoe Journey ~ Canoes Resting On Shore by 

My camera is a Panasonic LUMIX FH27 digital

The Annual July 2011 Tribal Canoe Journey hosted by The Quileute

Pullers from dozens of Pacific Northwest tribes and Canadian first nations are particitating. The annual voyage through the Salish Sea is a cultural

celebration of traditional song, dance & storytelling. It involves tribes from the North Olympic Peninsula, Puget Sound, Vancouver Island and the British
Columbia mainland. Pullers will embark from their own shores and make daily stops at other tribes. Each landing involves the traditional protocol,
where the visiting pullers ask the host tribe for permission to land.
This year’s journey culminates with a inter-tribal celebration at the Swinomish tribe in La Conner on July 25. The canoes landed at Port Townsend’s Fort Worden State Park on July 19. The three S’Klallam bands gave welcome to the canoes and paddlers in Port Townsend.
The Lower Elwha Klallam is hosting several tribes from Washington state, western Vancouver Island and the Victoria area. Pullers and their support teams will leave their canoes on the shore and make the short drive to the Lower Elwha Klallam Tribal Center for dinner and an evening of singing, dancing and storytelling ~ This information is from the Peninsula Daily News.

I enthusiastically love playing with art, exploring new mediums and new things with old mediums! Started when I could hold a pencil and am still going.
