TWA General Meeting
March 14 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pmFree
Join us to learn more about waterfront-related events and activities and network with others involved in Tacoma’s waterfront community. Our guest speaker is James Rideout with the Puyallup Tribal Council.
In late July this year the Puyallup Tribe of Indians will host the 2018 Canoe Journey with an expected 15,000 participants representing coastal tribes from all over the Pacific Northwest. The former Ole & Charlie’s Marina at the mouth of the Hylebos is the site of the landing. James is heading up an initiative to rebuild this location as a tribal cultural center. His presentation will cover this project and the Canoe Journey. The 2017 Canoe Journey landing was in Campbell River, BC.
