Early News About Canoe Journey, 2011

Swinomish is hosting the 2011 Canoe Journey. En route landing sites and dates so far include Suquamish, July 21-22; Tulalip, July 23; Coupeville, July 24. We will post more dates as they are known. Ceremonial in Swinomish is scheduled for July 25-July 31. (1)(2)(3). The landing site will be in Swadaps Park on Swinomish Channel.

This is going to be a bit further to go for our pullers than it was in 2010 (Makah) and 2009 (Suquamish).
