Anacla hosts visitors from the Tribal Journeys

Last Wednesday evening two canoes were spotted coming into Pachena Bay. Paddlers from Ahousaht and Hesquiaht arrived at high tide and the speakers from those communities asked for permission to come ashore.

The annual Tribal Journeys – Standing Together trip started on July 14 in Kyoquot and will end in Campbell River Saturday, August 5, 2017.  Tribal Journeys is a movement that offers different learning experiences for each member and nation. It is an opportunity to connect with various canoe families and visit their ḥahuułi (traditional territory).  Often the visitors and hosts will share a meal and their songs and dances.

To our visitors and any other families that join you along your journey, we wish you fair weather and favourable winds.

For more information, please see the Tribal Journeys website.
