A Pioneer's Search for an Ideal Home: A Book of Personal Memoirs

By Phoebe Goodell Judson | Go to book overview

CHAPTER XXXVI

Mr. Judson procured three large "salt chuck" canoes, with two Indians apiece, to paddle and pole us to our destination, the head of navigation on the Nooksack river.

While crossing the bay to the mouth of the river, we were caught in a storm. The waves rolled so high I greatly feared our canoes, so heavily loaded, would be swamped by the huge breakers. As I watched the two canoes ahead of us disappearing from sight between the waves, I held my breath each time, fearing they would never rise again.

How thankful we were to safely reach the mouth of the river, at the Lummi Indian reservation, under the auspices of the Catholic church. Here we found a good sized Indian village, composed of board cabins, a neat little church, and a flourishing school. The Indians were taught to cultivate the land, and many of them now have fine orchards.

As the salt water canoes were too large to run up the river, our goods were here transferred to smaller ones, "shovel nosed," they are called. In these days of good roads and fine bridges, the "shovel nosed" canoe, with the Indians, have almost become extinct.

While our goods were being transferred to the small canoes, we built a fire on the beach, and had just begun to prepare our noon lunch, when Mr. Finkboner, the Indian agent, invited us to his residence, where we had the privilege of preparing our dinner on his cook stove. His Indian woman welcomed us very kindly, and seemed pleased to entertain us in her home.
