Canoes were once the dominant mode of transportation, zigzagging through our region's waterways, linking local Native American communities, and allowing for hunting and trade. Soon, the Northwest Native Canoe Center will help share this story through a 1,200-square-foot building that will be a home for canoe carving and reconnecting Indigenous people of the Pacific Northwest to their heritage and homelands. In addition to a carving space, the center will include room for cultural events, a catering kitchen, and a gift shop. The United Indians of All Tribes Foundation (UIATF) recently held a blessing ceremony at the future site, with construction expected to start construction in the fall of 2023.
