Special Spirit Power, War Spirit Power, Thunder Power and Chain Lightning 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.

Everyone arrived promptly at the John Wayne Marina for this Saturday’s canoe practice. It was a lovely warm day with a breeze that would be utilized by the pullers later in the afternoon. After a smudging ceremony and instructions given by Marlin, TWO CANOES were put in the water. This was the first time that there were two canoes, but because so many pullers are coming to the practices each Saturday, more than one canoe is needed. It was also the first time for this year’s pullers to try out pulling in the Laxaynəm. The crew for each canoe was:
Laxaynəm: Irv Mortensen, Caleb Champagne, Sherry Macgregor, Candy Burkhardt, Andrea Champagne, Nikki Sather, Kissendrah Johnson and Skipper Marlin Holden.
canoe: Heather Johnson-Jock, Jorene Dick, Charlene Dick, John
Bridge, Taya Dancel, Audrey McWalter, Marie Champagne and Skipper
