T’ashii is a trail or path on land or on water. We chose the Nacha as our logo at T’ashii Paddle School. The Nacha is the tail feathers of a cixwatin (Bald Eagle). The Nacha is used for keeping the rhythm with each other in drumming and singing circles in Nuuchahnulth culture. It is also important to keep rhythm with each other when we are paddling. So we put paddles inside the feathers of our Nacha in the design.
