These are going to be my close Brothers for the next few weeks. We will sweat blood and tears for each other out there. The water is powerful it must be respected, the canoe has life and it must be respected. We are ready. #TseshahtCanoeFamily #PaddletoCampbellRiver .

Hesquiaht loud & proud at Fishery Celebration.

Excuse the wobbly, photographing & attempting to video record simultaneously is harder then it looks.

The Great Walls of Quadra

Quadra

Few boaters drifting through the bays of northern Quadra Island will ever notice them. But once a keen-eyed person points out these coastal features, they are unmistakable—as the tide recedes kilometer after kilometer of rock walls appear.

“I walked where the Grizzly Bear dances. I feel his pleasure, excitement and freedom on the earth and in the wind that carries his messages from the past. I dance where the Grizzly Bear danced his steps leaving an ancestral footprint on the land like a cellular memory in my blood. His face is a shadow that calls to me as the wind calls his name “St’alhalam.” The Grizzly Bear he sings his songs as we unite under his skin. I now walk where he left his ancestral footprints. I heard his prayer, I felt his pain, I am his anger, I am his hope, I am his faith. He now dances upon the earth, now, only where I leave my ancestral footprints.”  –Laura John ,“Stálhalamcen – Grizzly Paws,”
