Canoeists complete leg in trip to Lummi

The Bellingham Herald and The Olympian have stories about the Paddle to Lummi:

The Bellingham Herald:

PORT ANGELES — Tribal canoe groups from Vancouver Island and the Washington coast converged here Saturday to complete the first phase of their long voyage to Lummi Nation for the Intertribal Canoe Journey that begins July 30.

The Olympian:

As mist hung over the Nisqually River on Sunday, more than a dozen canoes and their skippers thanked the Frank’s Landing community while taking leave of their shore and heading to the Puyallup reservation.

The canoes were among the dozens throughout the Pacific Northwest that have taken to the waters for the annual intertribal Canoe Journeys, which is making its way this year to the Lummi reservation near Bellingham at the end of the month.
