Canoe Family

The Samish Canoe Family's vision is to open spaces for Tribal citizens to engage in traditional Samish language & culture while navigating the traditional transportation highways of the Salish Sea.

The Samish Canoe Family is a volunteer group of tribal citizens, friends and relatives. The Canoe Family is predominantly self-funded through fundraising activities throughout the year and enjoys being called to "do work"; such as making small outings and answering invitations to bring our canoes to local festivals and events.

10 Rules of The Canoe

1. EVERY STROKE WE TAKE IS ONE LESS WE HAVE TO MAKE
2. THERE IS TO BE NO ABUSE OF SELF OR OTHERS
3. BE FLEXIBLE
4. THE GIFT OF EACH ENRICHES ALL
5. WE ALL PULL AND SUPPORT EACH OTHER
6. A HUNGRY PERSON HAS NO CHARITY
7. EXPERIENCES ARE NOT ENHANCED THROUGH CRITICISM
8. THE JOURNEY IS WHAT WE ENJOY
9. A GOOD TEACHER ALLOWS THE STUDENT TO LEARN
