Tribal Journey's

 

join 11 youth as they make the arduous canoe journey to Bella Bella. On July 4th, 2014 the Kw'umut Lelum & Malahat Nation Canoe Family left from Brown's Bay Vancouver Island to make their way to Bella Bella and the 2014 Tribal Journeys QATUWAS FESTIVAL. As they follow the ancient water routes traveled by their their ancestors, they are welcomed to each nation's traditional lands with ceremony and protocols. The return to Bella Bella was a memorable journey not only for the youth, but also for many Elders as they traveled through pristine waters and remote locations to the lands of the Heiltsuk Nation where the first Tribal Canoe Journeys gathering took place over 25 years ago.
