Hello there,

A cooperation between ATAYAL Organization (USA) and the Tao Foundation (Taiwan) has been established. The ATAYAL Organization (USA) and Bridge Studios (Taiwan) have long created cultural exchange and cooperation opportunities between Taiwanese indigenous people and Native American groups. In the summer of 2017, we have yet another amazing opportunity that we will support, the 2017 Tribal Canoe Journey. (https://www.tribaljourneys2017.com/) We will depart on the 15th of July and meet our Nisqually Canoe Family on the 16th. “Our Journey” from Olympia will commence on the 17th.

The ATAYAL Organization is working with Taiwan's Indigenous People and the Tao Foundation to send a delegation to Seattle, WA this July to join the 2017 Tribal Canoe Journey. (Standing Together)

We hope to raise fund through Go Fund Me, The Tao Foundation in Taiwan, ATAYAL in America and also with the help of the Native American Tribes of the Pacific Northwest. 

The Tribal Canoe Journey is a yearly event bringing together indigenous people from all over the world to spend up to a month paddling their canoes and learning the ways of their ancestors. This is a wonderful cultural event and we hope to represent Taiwan this year. We will join the Nisqually Canoe Family. Our journey will be about 14 days. This year’s final destination is Quadra Island off of Port Campbell on Vancouver Island, Canada. 

We hope to find the funds to bring a 4 member delegation to observe. This is a big project and really needs the help of our members, businesses partners, associates and friends to make this come to fruition. 
Please make a donation on our website and be part of the team.
Your donation will go towards the following:
Airfare for 4 people between Taiwan and Seattle, WA (US$7,500).Meals, Transportation Rentals and Accommodations in the USA (US$ 2,500) - Although the host family and tribal peoples will provide some accommodations during the event, a budget is needed to provide meals and accommodations for the cultural exchange group upon arrival and upon completion of "Our Journey".
Additionally, a thank you gift for our Native American Hosts and our Canoe Family (US$200) - Some wood carvings will be obtained from an indigenous artist to provide as a cultural exchange gift. Admin Support and translation fees: (US$300)                                                               If you have any questions, please contact:
