Tribal Journeys is an annual event uniting Coastal First Nations of the Pacific Northwest, reviving Indigenous traditions, and fostering cultural revitalization and reconciliation. Led by Elder Gary Manson, Munu Canoe Family will paddle from Snuneymuxw Territory to Puyallup Territory in Washington State to join over 70 canoe families in this life-changing event.
Enjoy a rare opportunity to celebrate, witness, honour, and support Munu Canoe Family as they prepare for this year’s journey.
