The Journey, Columbia River, Chinook country


This past week I had the honor of being invited to photograph a historical canoe journey, as the Chinook tribe travelled down the Columbia River from the Cathlapotle village site near Ridgefield to Chinook Point, adjacent to Fort Columbia State Park, by way of three tribal canoes. This was the first time in more than 150 years that the tribe has made this trek. I was onboard two of the canoes throughout Thursday morning, and met up with them again the next day as they finished up their 78 mile trek over three days.

I also, for the first time in two-plus year, made an audio slideshow from stuff compiled for this story, which you can view HERE if you like.
