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 registration for the Kiana Lodge Curriculum Training March 6-7, 2014 is at full capacity, and confirmation emails have been sent. Registration for the Northern Quest Curriculum Training May 15-16 2014 is still open at this time. There are plans for an additional training in Western Washington later in the year. Stay tuned for more information.
