2014 Aboriginal Day, Squamish

GSB_Canada_036987The Squamish Nation (Skwxwú7mesh stelmexw) held a community event at the beautiful Stawamus waterfront in the shadow of the Chief on June 20th. A highlight was the 10th annual Aboriginal Day Canoe Race.  The event provided an opportunity to celebrate the a unique aspect of the Coast Salish Nation, namely their amazing sea-faring history, and build an appreciation of its deep culture and rich history.  Some photos of the event can be seen here.  I also included a few shots of log sorting activities in the Mamquam Blind Channel that were going on at the same time.
