Naming ceremony

Posted: Wednesday, April 28, 2004

The SouthEast Alaska Regional Health Consortium will hold a naming ceremony for its traditional Native-style canoe from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday at Sandy Beach in Douglas. Elders will name the canoe "Spirit of Strength" in Tlingit. Dancing and a picnic will follow the naming. The fiberglass canoe is used by the SEARHC Heath Promotion Department to take children out on the water to promote healthy lifestyles and cultural awareness. A SEARHC team also races the canoe.
