Le Moyne College Hosts Screening of Documentary

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (For Immediate Release) … Every summer, over 100 American Indian canoes travel in the ocean waters of Western Washington and British Columbia, in what has become known as Tribal Journeys. These canoes have brought healing through tradition to thousands of indigenous Americans from coastal nations – rediscovering their ancestral roots as People of the Water.

Le Moyne College will host a screening of a documentary about these travels, “Canoe Way: The Sacred Journey,” on Tuesday, March 30, at 4:30 p.m. in Grewen Auditorium.

The film documents the annual journeys of Pacific Northwest peoples as they follow their ancestral pathways traveling through the waters of Puget Sound, Inside Passage and the Northwest Coast, connecting with their history and traditions. Novelist Philip Red Eagle, who is of Salish and Dakota ancestry, will introduce the film and answer questions about it following the screening.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact (315) 445-4364 or visit canoeway.org/
