N'chi Wanapum Annual Canoe Journey
Cedar canoes are the traditional mode of transportation for people of the Pacific Northwest and the Columbia Plateau. Warm Springs has nurtured a youth group of the community for 3 years now participating in Canoe Journey in a successful effort to revive cultural teachings, songs, and dance. Each year around July, more than a 100 canoes from as many as 90 US Tribes, Canadian First Nations and New Zealand and an estimated 12,000 people participate in the annual Tribal Canoe Journeys. "We pull together; we sing and dance; and we share our culture – everthing in honor of our past, present and future generations." This year 2013, N'chi Wanapum joins other canoe families as they "Paddle to Quinalt."
