We initially contacted Dr. Eugene Arima, who has done extensive research in canoe building. His expertise in canoe building and draftsmanship was a valuable resource for us in each canoe project.  Mervyn Child and I travelled to number of museums studying the hull of the many different style of canoes of the Northwest Coast people.



Other canoes we've carved:
  • Fort Rupert, BC. Kwakiutl Band - 40’ Northern Style Canoe.  “U’gwamalis Gixdan” 1997
  • Comox, BC – 32’ Kwakiutl Canoe “I-Hos”. 1994.
  • Fort Rupert, BC. Copper Maker Gallery - 32’ Kwakiutl Canoe “Maxwalogwa”.  1993


For information about commissioning a red cedar canoe, a fibreglassed chapats, please feel free to contact us.
