Dear Canoe Families:


Due to the current health crisis, and out of an abundance of caution and concern for our communities, we have decided to postpone Awaken the Canoes 2020. We are hopeful that in the coming months circumstances will change, once again allowing us to gather. Our goal is to review and assess every thirty days, so please check back (


We wish you and your families good health in the days ahead.
