Suquamish Tribe will host the end of journey events Aug. 3 – Aug. 8, 2009.
This year is the 20 year anniversary of Paddle to Seattle; which was the first of the modern-day Native Canoe Journeys. There were no known organized traditional-style intertribal canoe journeys since the 1800’s.
The 1989 Paddle to Seattle involved 9 canoes from Washington Coastal Tribes and British Columbia paddling from Suquamish to Seattle. See More Historic Perspective CLICK HERE.
These journeys have become annual events, known by many as “Tribal Journeys”.
