Canoe Carving

The Hɛhɛwšɩn (the way forward) Reconciliation Canoe Carving project is underway at Willingdon Beach,
and over the next 5-6 weeks a very large log will be turned into a very nice cedar canoe. Here carver
Sherman Pallen takes shavings off what will be the prow.

The carvers will be at the site from 8-4:30, Monday through Friday, and anyone interested is invited
to go down and lend a hand. We will be revisiting from time to time, as progress continues.
