Documentary Release July 4th!

Over a period of one year, we documented the transformation of a 700-year-old cedar tree into an ocean-going dugout canoe. In the process, we also captured the transformation of Indigenous youth as they followed the path of their ancestors.

Slhexun's tthu Xpey' (Medicine of the Cedar) is a 40-minute documentary film that follows master carver Luke Marston, knowledge keeper Lawrence Mitchell and a group of youth as they carve the canoe and prepare to take it on a ocean voyage to Puyallup.

The free screening is open to the public; tickets are available through Eventbrite:
