skipper (253) 350-7118
The following is an excerpt from Anita's Story (Tribal Journeys 2007 Paddle to Lummi):
Mary was skipper on the Blue Heron and Ire was lead puller on the Raven. For a few private moments when other people were talking back and forth across the canoes, Mary and Ire were sharing their experiences in Lushootseed. It was moving to me. How long has it been since people have talked between canoes in Lushootseed, having an authentic, non-rehearsed exchange in traditional canoes?
Thank you Laughs-a-lot (Anita)
