Necklace Beading for the 2019 Canoe Journey

by Lynn Roesch & Marilyn Mayers

Thanks to all those at East Shore–both youth and adults–who made necklaces for this year’s Canoe Journey: “Paddle to Lummi,” Sqweshenet Tse Schelangen “Honoring Our Way of Life.” We delivered 153 necklaces, made by East Shore congregants and others, to the Lummi who are hosting the Canoe Journey in Bellingham from July 24-28th to celebrate the Coast Salish people. Remember, you are all invited to attend the landing on July 24th of over 100 canoes from California, Washington, Oregon and British Columbia at Lummi! You can also observe dances, drumming, and songs in the days following.
