Each summer Native Americans along the Pacific coast get together to celebrate culture and family in the annual Canoe Journey. This  year we brought our family canoe down to Squaxin Island near the capitol, Olympia. Hard work, sweat, family closeness, and sharing culture with other Native Americans from other tribes – the Canoe Journey is quite the experience!

Ten days of camping with two children? Not so easy…

      It has really grown in recent years. I think this is the 14th year. In 1998 when it first began there were only like 7 canoes. Now there are 100. Our tribe hosted it last year and we had thousands of people on our little reservation. It was pretty awesome.
