Mile Coastal Canoe Journey on Canada's First
Nations Vision Quest
Nations people from the Prince Rupert Hazelton area
and points along the Inside Passage - joined Royal
Canadian Mounted Police officers in Vision Quest.
The 1,000 mile canoe journey, followed the Skeena
River to the Pacific, then headed south in a month
long event. The excitement and inspiration
generated by everyone; the RCMP, First Nations
people, communities, media, the film industry and
those able to contribute financially, shows that a
spirit of cooperation can transcend any barriers.
Final celebrations in Victoria, were timed to
coincide with the opening of the North American
cultures, traditions and history on the
Inside Passage of the rugged BC-Alaska Coast
The World's largest
collection of canoes and kayaks. Much more to come
on this web site relating to the museum and to
canoeing as a challenging and rewarding
