Tribal Canoe Journey

2017 Tribal Canoe Journey Cultural Exchange Fund

Cooperation between ATAYAL Organization (USA) and the Tao Foundation (Taiwan) has been established. The ATAYAL Organization (USA) and Bridge Studios (Taiwan) have long created cultural exchange and cooperation opportunities between Taiwanese indigenous people and Native American groups. In the summer of 2017, we have yet another amazing opportunity that we will support, the 2017 Tribal Canoe Journey. ( We will depart on the 15th of July and meet our Nisqually Canoe Family on the 16th. "Our Journey" from Olympia will commence on the 17th.

The ATAYAL Organization is working with Taiwan's Indigenous People and the Tao Foundation to send a delegation to Seattle, WA this July to join the 2017 Tribal Canoe Journey. (Standing Together)

We hope to raise fund through The Tao Foundation in Taiwan, ATAYAL in America and also with the help of the Native American Tribes of the Pacific Northwest.

This year's final destination is Quadra Island off of Port Campbell on Vancouver Island, Canada.
