Darkfeather Ancheta, Eckos Chartraw-Ancheta, and Bibiana Ancheta, Tulalip, Washington. Darkfeather, is pictured with her sister Bibiana and nephew Eckos at the edge of Tulalip Bay. They are wearing traditional regalia prepared for their annual Canoe Journey. Every year, upwards of 100 U.S. tribes, Canadian First Nations and New Zealand canoe families will make “The Journey” by pulling their canoes to a host destination Tribe. Canoe families pull for weeks, and upon landing participate in several days and nights of “protocol”, a celebration sharing traditional knowledge, ancestral songs, and sacred dances.
