WEST SEATTLE SCENE: Canoe family at Don Armeni

Thanks to Robin for the tip. The Muckleshoot Tribe‘s canoe family is gathered at Don Armeni Boat Ramp right now, preparing to launch. They told us they’ll be paddling this afternoon to Alki Beach and back.

Tribes’ canoes have been largely out of action during the pandemic; the traditional summertime multi-nation Canoe Journeys have been on hiatus, and there’s no date set yet for when they’ll resume.

    I hope they’ve been working out cuz that wind is blowing pretty good right now!

    If they resume the multi-nation Canoe Journeys, will the Duwamish people be invited? How long must they wait before they are recognized?

      There are good reasons for this.  The Duwamish Tribal Organization is not a continuation of nor linked to the historic Duwamish Tribe.  Muckleshoot is. Please take this opportunity to learn about the indigenous people of this land:

      Many blessings.
