  1. Where can i find plans to build those wonderful boats?? Thanks

    • Most all of the Traditional Seagoing canoes are hand carved from huge Cedar Trees. A few are built in the strip canoe fashion, and some are formed from fiberglass. The canoe carvers have honed their skills over years of canoe-building, and I don’t have knowledge of it, if there are any “plans” for them. If you live in, or can travel to, the Pacific Northwest (NW Washington State or British Columbia) you may be able to connect with some of the canoe builders during the time frame of the Native Canoe Journey / Trible Journeys.

  2. I think it is wonderful that the elders are passing on these traditions to their young people!

  3. Thats a cool canoe Nooksack Ryder’s!! it just floats along
