Coast Salish Speakers-Song and Dance!
Save the date! We will host dancers from the Tulalip tribe (the youngest dancer is two) who will show us songs and dances from their community. More information to come.
The Intertribal Canoe Journey is a tradition for Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest Coast. Each year, 60+ canoe families travel many miles from Alaska, Washington, and British Columbia in ocean-going canoes – some made with traditional materials and methods – to connect communities and share songs, dances, stories, and gifts. Along the way, the canoe families stop at host sites to rest and celebrate. The public is invited to volunteer in organizing or cooking, take part in a potluck, and experience the performance of the canoe families. We invite you to attend four presentations by Coast Salish speakers and elders.
