Canoe Carving II

The Hɛhɛwšɩn (the way forward) Reconciliation Canoe Carving project continues at Willingdon
Beach.  Both canoes, this large one and another smaller one, are being worked on
daily. Saturday the large one will be steamed, to widen it 4 to 6 inches, which
should be interesting to see. Above foreground is carver Sherman Pallen,
below, carver Ivan Rosypskye.


  1. Nice... they have talent that I don't even come close to.

  2. This is something I'd love to see. These are such beautiful boats.

  3. Got to see the carving when the Canada C3 ship came to visit. It was amazing to imagine traveling through the Northwest Passage by ship. - Margy
