The Talking Raven is now online! Visit today to read the latest news from the Quileute Tribe.
The Quileute Tribe is located in La Push, Washington, on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. The Quileute Tribe has lived and hunted in this area for thousands of years. Although the village of La Push is only about one-square mile, the tribe’s original territory stretched along the shores of the Pacific from the glaciers of Mount Olympus to the rivers of rain forests. Much has changed since those times, but Quileute Elders remember “back in the days” When the “old people” dared challenge kwalla, the mighty whale, and recounted the story of how the bayak or raven placed the sun in the sky.
Because of the remote location of La Push, the Quileute have built a tourism industry that serves those seeking a relaxing getaway or a rejuvenating adventure. The tribe’s Oceanside Resort along First Beach offers ocean-view accommodations ranging from luxurious to rustic. Those who visit La Push come for whale watching in the spring; surfing, fishing, and hiking in the summer; and storm watching in the fall and winter.
The Quileute Tribe hosted the 2013 Paddle to Quinault on July 28th, 29th and 30th 2013
In 1989, a cultural resurgence took place as seventeen canoes from area tribes made their way on the Paddle to Seattle, reviving and celebrating the tribal canoeing culture during Washington’s centennial year. Three of those were Quileute canoes. Today, the annual canoe journey draws thousands of individuals from around Washington, the Northwest & even the world who witness the trek of more than 100 canoes making their way to the host tribe’s shores for celebratory protocol in the potlatch-style tradition, celebrating timeless songs, gifting and culture.
2013 was a rare year in which the last leg of the journey with so many canoes traveled through Quileute waters on their way to the shores of the Quinault. It will be many years before such a large group passes through again.
We want to extend a huge THANK YOU to all our volunteers and everyone who worked so hard to make this exciting event a reality!
