Canoe Family

The Samish Canoe Family's vision is to open spaces for Tribal Members 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 members, 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

  • 10. WHEN GIVEN ANY CHOICE AT ALL, BE A WORKER BEE – MAKE HONEY!
