A young girl enjoys the festivities at the Canoe Landing. The drum she holds is a product of one of the community art workshops led by drum-maker Joe Seymour, a Squaxin Island member. The workshop, along with a majority of the others, included very small children, high school students, college students, adults, and senior citizens of the community. This intergenerational participation set the tone for the Canoe Journey and Protocol Celebration, encouraging unity throughout families as well as the community. Photo by Theresa Henderson
