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. If you would like to learn more about this project please visit their website at www.yfnct.ca. Information on their boat project can be found under Canada 150.
