Canoe cross last stretch of water on final leg of their journey to Suquamish Tribe
Today, Monday, August 3, 2009 Canoes travel the last leg of the journey for Paddle to Suquamish. They left the shores of Port Gamble Tribe (Little Boston) and Golden Gardens (Seattle) and will land in Suquamish (Port Madison Tribe) later today. Here, they will take part in official canoe landing ceremonies / protocol where each canoe will announce who they are, where they are from, and ask permission to land. They will be welcomed ashore by dignitaries and elders of the Suquamish Tribe, and invited to join the several days of celebration hosted by that tribe.
