Paddle to Nisqually Tribal Canoe Journey 2016:
DAY 1, the landing
Here is a picture of Ana (on right), Tlingit Nation (Alaska). Some Canoes traveled from as far north as Alaska.
Here is Zephyr, Tongva Tribal Nation (California- LA Basin). She comes from a Tribe forcefully removed from their LA area and denied recognition as a Tribe. This was the second time her Tribe has been out on the water on a journey (in recent years, since cultural revitalization).
California was the farthest south of any Canoe.
We were all here welcoming the paddlers, crew, TribesPeople
