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 (ADAI), 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 will be holding trainings in 2014 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 the Kiana Lodge Curriculum Training March 6-7, 2014 was a success with 30 attendees from 11 tribes and organizations. We are looking forward to our May 15-16, 2014 training at Northern Quest. Look for information about our 2015 trainings soon.
