Suquamish Youth Take A Trip On A Tall Ship
by Suquamish News

Cultural exchange with Sound Experience helps teach traditional ways to others

The Tall Ship, the Adventuress, visited Suquamish in September for a cultural exchange with youth titled “Adventuress and Suquamish: Overnight Cultural Exchange in Port Madison Bay”. The exchange included 12 youth from Suquamish and 12 youth from Bainbridge Island.

All 24 children spent three days on the Adventuress Sept 18-20, learning the nautical lifestyle of western sailing. With the help of the Suquamish Museum and the Suquamish Tribe Sports and Recreation Department, Suquamish culture was taught in tandem with the culture of the Adventuress. The exchange included a traditional salmon meal at the House of Awakened Culture, curriculum with an emphasis on Suquamish teachings and activities including a canoe pull. The 3-day, two-night adventure concluded with a sailing to Seattle in celebration of the Adventuresses’ centennial.

The Adventuress is owned and operated by Sound Experience. Since its inception, the non-profit Sound Experience has been educating youth and adults throughout Puget Sound with environmental education and leadership programs aboard the historic schooner Adventuress. In over 20 years, more than 50,000 (mostly youth) have sailed aboard, exploring the ecology and history of Puget Sound. In 1989, Adventuress was named a National Historic Landmark. Today, more than 3,000 people a year sail aboard, experiencing first-hand Puget Sound’s majesty and vulnerability, and how their daily actions will make a difference in the health of the region’s waterways for generations to come.
