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)

The Blue Heron
The (Great) Blue Heron has a subspecies that does not migrate. One such colony is in the Black River (not now existing) area located between Renton and Tukwila. A potential subdivision now threatens this colony. There is a effort to save this colony. See: http://www.heronsforever.org/
