Drift cards are showing up at Keeha Beach near Bamfield, BC, Canada from both the Vancouver area and from Port Angeles and the Elwah River on Washington State’s Olympic Pennisula. These cards model the movement of oil on the water. See here for technical backgrounder. I found the cards in Huu-ay-aht First Nations territory on the beach fronting their Treaty Lands at Keeha. A good reminder that we are all connected as one, a guiding principle of the Nuu-chah-nulth-aht. Anne Stewart
