Big Paddle Event
The 'Big Paddle' in honor of National Trails Day on Saturday June 2, 2012 included a 31' canoe made by a Lewis and Clark rein-actor. It was blessed and named at Long Beach and was then sent to St. Louis. Later it was returned to Pacific County and became Chairman Ray Gardnerís family canoe. These canoes will put it at the Port of Ridgefield.
This information was sent by Sam Robinson, Vice Chairman, Chinook Indian Nation. As he says 'alqi ntsayka wawa nayka shiksh' (Later we talk my friend.)
