Coverage of the annual gathering of canoe cultures
New York Times features Canoe Journey, Port Gamble S’KlallamJuly 25th, 2011 at Mon, 25th, 2011 at 2:30 pm by Tad Sooter
A Port Gamble S’Klallam canoe is making a splash on the front of NewYorkTimes.com.
A feature story on the Journey and a photo of the canoe Kloomachin were among the top 10 “most emailed” stories on the Times’ site Monday. The photo was taken as a Port Gamble S’Klallam crew welcomed canoes to Port Gamble Bay on July 20. The photographer stuck around to capture a poignant slideshow from the hosting.
“The first time we landed, the feeling was just unexplainable,” Port Gamble S’Klallam skipper Charlie Trevathan told the Times writer. “I cannot put it into words. Ever since then, we’ve gone back every year.”
