The Healing of the Canoe Project is a collaborative project between the Suquamish Tribe, the Port Gamble S’Klallam Tribe and the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute, University of Washington. Now in the final phase of an 11 year project, the Healing of the Canoe team is focusing on dissemination of the life skills curriculum that was developed by each tribal community to promote a sense of cultural belonging and prevent substance abuse among tribal youth. We are holding trainings in 2014 and 2015 to train tribal community members and service providers in how to adapt and implement the Healing of the Canoe Curriculum.

We are excited to report that both of our 2014 trainings (held at Kiana Lodge in Poulsbo, WA and Northern Quest Casino & Resort in Spokane, WA) were successful – with a total of 52 attendees from 18 tribes and organizations. We are looking forward to our upcoming training at Kiana Lodge on February 26-27, 2015 (which currently has a wait list) and our next training on May 5-6, 2015, also at Kiana Lodge.
