Northern birch bark canoes are among the most elegant watercraft in the world ~ technically difficult to construct, feather light to carry, beautiful to see gliding swiftly on water.
The First Nations Culture and Tourism Association just launched a six-week project which includes the construction of four traditional indigenous watercraft including a Spruce Dugout Canoe, a Birchbark Canoe, An Inuit Skin Kayak, and a Moose Skin Boat.
