  1. I realize tribal journey began long ago. It has evolved to something more spiritual. This is what I think….

    “Tribal journey is not a destination…it’s a healing journey.”

  2. Best wishes for a safe and inspiring journey. Clipper is honored to have built so many of the canoes (Northern Dancer, Pacific Dancer, Langley and Voyageur canoes) that we see in your journey. The artwork that so many of you have added to your canoes is absolutely beautiful.

  3. ….This year I am dedicating my paddling to all those who want to….but can’t. I am paddling for my uncle Fred George, old time paddler and friend Wayne Charlie (whom I know greatly misses paddling), those in the hospital, and those stuck at home, or in facilities. I will pray for you every day while I am out on the water.

  4. would like to pull to makah as was gifted a name there-can assist with support boats as well. have pulled on 3 journeys and know the waters here. can be in samish tonight or meet canoe en-route. pls call 360-848-5328 or email with details and how to best connect. thanks!

  5. Just trying to locate informaiotn on this web page about the 2010 route, landing etc and can not find anything, it keeps bring me back to comments etc. Is there one place that shows the dates, times, route landing etc.?

  6. As one of the hosts here in Ucluelet I wonder whom in each community with traveling canoes would be a connect? Knowing prior to landing would greatly help us estimate how we may best host? thanks geri

  8. HI all;

    A friend, who is Aleutian and Blackfeet, told me about your journey. Oh, my gosh! I wanna go and I’m just a honky white person.

    ‘Though I do have sisters who are part Canadian Cree and cousins who are affiliated with the Turtle Mountain tribe. But that’s a tenuous claim ‘cuz none were raised with any connection to tribal traditions.

    Well, even if I don’t make it to join my lovely friend, have a great time and kiss the sun & sea and stars & earth for me, too.

  9. Hi, I signed up as a volunteer at the 2009 journey to help with the Makah Journey. I may have given you the wrong email, cuz I havent heard from you. Let me know if I can assist.

  10. I am an old friend of Gilbert King George, former Chief of the Muckleshoot Tribe, and used to teach at the Muckleshoot Tribal School. Gilbert helped me create WildTech, a non-profit that teaches youth leadership skills in the wilderness. I have long wanted to take part in the Tribal Canoe. I am hoping to join the Muckleshoot Canoe to Makah this summer. Is there any room? If not, is there another tribe that needs somebody? I can pull more than my own weight.

    Very warm regards,

    • Dear Friends,

      I am an old friend of Gilbert King George and used to teach at the Muckleshoot Tribal School. Gilbert helped me create WildTech, a non-profit that teaches youth leadership skills in the wilderness. I have long wanted to take part in the Tribal Canoe. Is it possible for me to join the Muckleshoot Canoe to Makah this summer? If there is no room with the Muckleshoot tribe, is there a tribe that needs somebody? I can pull more than my own weight.

      Warm regards,

    Aloha, Reno Kapo Villaren.

    • Chamai,
      If you haven’t found a spot yet, you can always pull with BRIDGE. Check out our website and get in touch with me, if you are interested. Have a good weekend.
