Description

Building on Jill Dubisch’s identification of pilgrimages as a means for the expression and resolution of a community’s history of suffering (2005) this study examines the Native American Canoe Journey as a venue in which Pacific Northwest Native Americans create and voice community healing. This study emphasizes the profound symbolic role of the pilgrimage as a venue for individual and community healing in which tribes journey up the West Coast for nearly a month, reconnecting with their ancestral ways.
