Special Spirit Power, War Spirit Power, Thunder Power and Chain Ligtning was unique to the Dungeness people. The S'Klallams would display this power in the manner that they entered a village for a potlatch or gathering.

The weather changed overnight, and we woke up in the rain, pulling tarps from the trailer and trying to make enough dry area for breakfast. After pancakes and sausages, we had a smudging ceremony, thankful for the safe journey and for the teamwork that has gotten us to this point. We have become quite a close-knit group over the past week.
Marlin called Matt Adams to coordinate getting the Laxaynem back to Sequim, and the pullers left for the canoe landing to help hoist it onto the trailer, as Matt will arrive before lunch today.
Irv and I will leave tomorrow with Steve, so I will write more when I get back to Sequim. I have asked everyone on the journey to send me their thoughts over the next week or two, so they can be added to the blog, to give you a more in depth sense of it from many different perspectives.
Itís been hard work, but fun. We all have lots of suggestions for future journeys, and we all want to share our experiences with you in the hopes of getting much more Jamestown participation in the future. Next year the journey is to Suquamish, and Neah Bay in 2010.
