Ready to sail: Students from Carrie Kuhl’s Chester Elementary third-grade class, visiting the Spokane Tribe’s Fifth Annual Heritage Day Celebration on Wednesday at the Spokane Fair and Expo Center, sit in a dugout canoe carved by 500 Wellpinit high school, middle school and elementary students. The boat was carved from a ponderosa pine and was sailed from Astoria, Ore., to Little Falls in Stevens County to trace salmon runs. The boat is called the Salmon Savior. (Dan Pelle)
