Yellow and red cedar bark baskets and hats, earrings and pouches all hand woven. We also have carvings. All of these items are made from cedar that has been harvested in our traditional territory. We have many items that are hand painted with dyes on silk, including scarves and hankies, bandanas and shawls, and paintings that depict life on the reservation and the nature that surrounds us. Classes for weaving and silk painting are available upon request; a minimum of six persons is preferred. Please call or e-mail me for more details of prices, times and dates available.
The Southern Gulf Islands has some of the best sailing and kayaking and wildlife viewing available in the world. Wildlife encounters include Orcas, Minke and Gray whales, Porpoise, Otters, Seals, Sea lions, and a vast array of local and migrating marine bird life. We will explore new areas and each night will find us in a new anchorage. One of the greatest advantages of Kayaking from a mother ship is being able to reach secluded spots away from the reach of other kayakers.
