Today 20+ Indian canoes left Golden Gardens Park in Seattle for their final destination at Suquamish across Puget Sound for the annual event, Tribal Journeys. It’s pretty amazing to see dozens of pullers hauling heavy cedar canoes over their heads to the beach, several at at time. Each canoe captain thanks the local tribe for their hospitality, and the local tribe thanks the canoe for coming. Quite the moving experience. Some canoes came as far away as northern BC, south of Alaska. They’ll be in Suquamish for nine days. I could see the party tents there from Seattle, a distance of 4.5 miles. The tents reminded me of the 480′ longhouse once seen there prior to indian agents burning it down.
