Every year the middle of August my good neighbors the InShuckch people put on a weekend long, open to the public get together called InShuckch Days. There are 3 small communities scattered in the valley which take turns hosting the annual event, and this year Samaquam upriver from here held the honor. I've always made accomodation available for the sound technicians, performers, and organizing crew that have to travel out to the territory. Kerry Lumsden has been organizing the event most years and showed up on the Tuesday with the advance crew.
Gary, Raven, Shannon, Kerry.
It didn't take anybody long to get settled in.
I heard a rumor they were all spending a considerable time down in the hot spring too.
Chris heard how much fun everyone was having here and set up his tent down by the creek.
Gerald, a traditional dancer, arrived and took a bunk in the motor home, I forget who ended up in the trailer, and Raven slept out under the stars, which I think was probably the best spot.
Myself and a couple earlier generations have always got on great with the InShuckch folks, and I couldn't ask for a better bunch of neighbors.
