This 1.5 day event will present the Healing of the Canoe life skills curriculum to participants representing 10 regional tribes. Originally developed by Dr. Dennis Donovan in collaboration with the Suquamish and Port Gamble S'Klallam tribes and colleagues at the University of Washington Alcohol & Drug Abuse Institute (ADAI), the curriculum employs the Canoe Journey as a metaphor, providing youth with skills needed to navigate their journey through life without being pulled off course by alcohol or drugs -- with tribal culture, tradition, and values as a compass to guide them, and anchor to ground them.
