Many dozens of canoes from around the Pacific Northwest Coast and Salish Sea arrived Wednesday at the Lummi Nation, near Bellingham Washington, in the Tribal Canoe Journey, an annual event celebrating the cultural revitalization (especially for youth) of "traveling the highways of the ancestors." Some of the canoes traveled 400 miles over three weeks.

There will now be five days of Protocol (open to the public), as each tribal canoe family presents songs and dances from their homeland. I'll post photos of Protocol soon. #PaddleToLummi2019 -- Zoltan Grossman
