End of a long journey




Members of the Lummi youth canoe family land their canoes in Marine Park on July 24. The journey united members of the Lummi, Semiahmoo and Haida nations for a five-day voyage. The canoe family has made the journey each year for nearly a century, but this was the first time the trip ended in Blaine. On July 25, the canoe family performed traditional dances and songs at a potlatch reception in Marine Park.
