More Bark Canoe Resources

Rob Stevens has posted a new list of bark canoe resources on the website of the Wooden Canoe Heritage Association. It includes lists of canoe builders, books, videos/other media, and relevant organizations and museums, and it seems pretty comprehensive. Rob told me earlier today that a couple of the links are broken and he's working to fix them, so if you follow a link in the next hour or so and it doesn't work, try again in a few days.

The canoe shown here was built at Penobscot Marine Museum last summer by a team of apprentices working Steve Cayard, one of the finest practioners of the art. It's for sale by the museum, proceeds going to repeat the program and help perpetuate this rare skill among Native American people.
