Please join us for a film screening of Canoe Way: The Sacred Journey, a film documenting the annual Tribal Journeys of Pacific Northwest Coast Salish people. Indigenous tribes and First Nations from Oregon, Washington, Canada and Alaska follow their ancestral pathways through the waters of Puget Sound, Inside Passage and the Northwest Coast. Families and youth reconnect with the past and each other. Ancient songs, dances, regalia, ceremonies, and language were almost lost and are coming back.

Witness first hand, through the words and images of a proud people, as they share the story of the resurgence of the cedar canoe societies – and how it has opened a spiritual path of healing through tradition.

This screening will take place to celebrate Canoe Journey 2016: Paddle to Nisqually.

During UW summer quarter, the Department of American Indian Studies will offer an exciting learning opportunity: a Tribal Canoe Journey field course. For more information, visit the AIS website: http://bit.ly/237nMaV
