Tribal Journeys canoes arrive at Alki



Thanks to David Hutchinson for those photos and word that the Tribal Journeys canoes have landed at Alki (which explains the Lincoln Park sighting earlier) – the canoes at Alki (on the sand east of the Bathhouse) are Muckleshoot canoes, according to the Tribal Journeys website. We visited during their stop last year (WSB coverage here) – quite something to see if you can get down to the beach tonight (reading the online schedule, looks like they may be here through tomorrow night too, with security watching the canoes while their occupants are bused to accommodations elsewhere). Canoes are traveling four routes as part of this event, all bound for a celebration in British Columbia.

    Thank you for your photos and wonderful of our Native Canoe Journeys landing on Alki Beach. This is one of many stops before they reach the destination of 100 or more ocean-going canoes at Cowichan (on Vancouver Island near Duncan, B.C.). Everyone is welcome to witness these culturally rich events: any of the stops along the way and the destination point at Cowichan. It will be an experience to treasure and tell your children and grandchildren about. Or better yet – bring them along too. :-) More details on

Sorry, comment time is over.
