InterTribal Canoe Journey

Potlatch Fund is proud to support the InterTribal Canoe Journey, which seeks to honor the centuries-old tradition of transport and trade by the coastal Tribes of the Northwest. Historically many traveled the waters to meet and gather for festivities. The modern canoe journey was revitalized in 1989, and today the journey is an important event for many Tribes and has become a way of teaching today’s youth Tribal history, protocol, and cultural preservation.

Potlatch Fund is proud to support the InterTribal Canoe Journey. Here is how you can help.
