My 1st time participating was 2016 Paddle to Nisqually with my cousin beginning from Beecher Bay. 2017 I had my own crew, we started off with 4 crew members launching from our Hesquiaht territory beac...h. Our canoe traveled 690 kms with 6 full time pullers and 2 spares shorthanded at times but we completed the journey proving our doubters we would do it. Hesquiaht has registered our canoe Nii-nus Hes-kwii for the Power Paddle to Puyallup 2018 we are looking forward to another great journey . See More

An absolutely amazing experience! Thank you to the Nisqually Tribe for the generous hosting of this 2016 Journey. Volunteering with you all has been such a blessing. My favorite moment was definitely ...driving a golf cart for Elders and pullers. I've met some beautiful souls this week. See More

I love taking part in shared Cultures, and witnessing the magnitude of the Awe, it's so inspiring.
I have been welcoming People to my homeland and waters. I enjoy meeting new people and tending to eld...ers, and seeing friends and family.

Today we on Three Tree Point in Burien were blessed to have several of the beautiful canoes stop for a break. I wish I had known in advance as I could have met them with refreshments. Please feel to let me know if you plan to stop on the way home so I can properly welcome you. I also have a few phone pics I could forward along. My neighbor said about thirty minutes later there were dolphins or porpoises seen. Even a couple of gulls followed the boats as they left. See More
