TRIBAL CANOE JOURNEY HOSTING

SONS OF NORWAY

OLD MAN HOUSE PARK

Typically mid- to late-July. Since 1993, Tribal Canoe Journeys have celebrated the culture and traditions of Salish tribes.

 

Each night the canoes stop at a new host tribe before setting off again in the morning. The Port Gamble S’Klallam are well known for their hospitality during the hosting—and everyone is invited!

Sons of Norway is located downtown, adjacent the waterfront, and offers authentic Norwegian lunches—“kaffe stua”—every Wednesday.

 

Browse the historic pieces that are displayed in the lodge. Ask anyone you run into; chances are they are direct descendants of some of Poulsbo’s hearty settlers.

 

If your group is all over 21, drop by the Troll’s Den and listen to the stories of days gone by. Authentic. Norwegian. Poulsbo.

For the Salish Tribes of the Puget Sound, a single large building served as the center of the community, a place for community living and major events.

 

The largest Suquamish winter village and Big House was located on the shoreline of Agate Passage. Old-Man-House was home to Chief Seattle before it was destroyed by the US government in 1870.

 

Archeological investigations conducted on the site document habitation over the past 2000+ years. The Park is a short walk down Division Street to the waterfront from the Museum.
