Canoe Pull at Tahkenitch Lake
April 8 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Tahkenitch (tsaxinich) was a traditional village at a marine estuary where our people lived for thousands of years. The site is dated to be older than 8,000 years. However, around 3,000 years
ago the sand dunes encroached and slowly turned this marine estuary into the freshwater lake we know today. This site is a sacred place.
On April 8th join us for the first Canoe Pull of the season. We plan to pull on Tahkenitch Lake! We will meet at the Tahkenitch Landing Boat Ramp at the campground at 9:00am. We will canoe,
sing and maybe even dance a bit to bless these lands and waters.
We will also have a picnic and talk about the historic site. Come join us for this historic canoe pull. If transportation is needed from the Tribal Administration Building in Coos Bay or the Florence Outreach Office, please call Jesse Beers at (541) 997-6685. In any case, please remember to RSVP so that we can plan accordingly.
