Paddle to Suquamish
The 2009 Paddle to Suquamish marked the 20th anniversary for the tribal canoe journeys. Through many challenges and much determination, the canoe journeys survived. Many of our ancestors travelled though the Puget Sound for many reasons: trading, hunting, fishing and ceremonies (weddings, traditional naming ceremonies, potlatches, etc.). They shared their songs and traded along the way.

Navajo Code Talkers – The code that was never broken http://bit.ly/XunWtT

One thing to remember is to talk to the animals. If you do, they will talk back to you. But if you don’t talk to the animals, they won’t talk back to you, then you won’t understand, and when you don’t understand you will fear and when you fear you will destroy the animals, and if you destroy the animals, you will destroy yourself.
