When I was young, one of the big highlights of the summer would be war canoe races.

For anyone who is drawn to this sort of thing, it's well worth a visit to the U'mista Cultural Society in Alert Bay, B.C. (U'mista means "return"; in this case the return of artifacts to the people who actually made them). There's also an amazing elementary school in Alert Bay which combines Kwakwaka'wakw with contemporary architecture and has a Kwakwaka'wakw immersion program.
