This year, the people of the Salish Sea will join in celebrating 68 years of the world famous Lummi Stommish Water Festival -- June 12th - 22, 2014, on the Lummi Indian reservation near Bellingham, WA.  Stommish began back in 1946, when our World War II veterans were coming home -- it was then that Lummi's World War I veterans decided to gather in celebration of their safe return.  A Cowichan word meaning "warrior," Stommish has become an international renowned gathering which includes -- the "War Canoe races," a "Sla-hal Bone Game" tournament, and an "Honoring All Veterans" Pow Wow. 

Stommish is a multi-cultural contemporary Coast Salish gathering which includes fun and enjoyment for the whole family.  Stommish features:  Athletic events, traditional singing and dancing, a traditional Lummi-Style Salmon Barbeque, a Carnival and a Moonlight Concert series featuring Native comedians & local musicians all throughout the weekend.  Admission is Free and Stommish is open to the public.

We sincerely hope you come join our people of this land and this sea -- and "Experience the Spirit of Stommish."
