Creating a Nuu-chah-nulth Canoe at Chesterman Beach

Jackie had a great piece on the art of Nuu-chah-nulth canoe carving on CBC's North By Northwest over the past weekend. She interviewed Joe and Carl Martin to learn about their art — carving canoes from red cedar. You can listen to the radio story here.

Jackie was kind enough to fire over these photos and a link to a video she'd shot of a canoe being steamed. If you are in Tofino, make sure you check out the carving shed on Chesterman Beach near the Wickaninnish Inn. There is carving at Tin Wis on occasion as well.
