Tribal Canoe Journey reaches final destination

More than 100 canoes were welcomed to shore by the Cowichan First Nation in British Columbia on Monday evening.

The canoes represent tribes from Washington and Alaska and First Nations from B.C. They paddled from their home communities to the Cowichan Reserve for what has been the largest Tribal Canoe Journey in history.

Participants will spend the next week celebrating on the reserve. Many will stay for the 2008 Indigenous Games, which takes place August 3-8 in Cowichan.
