Dugout Flashback

Dugout Flashback

Just five weeks ago Wayne Price and Justin Smith stood at the foot of a giant Sitka spruce near Haines, Alaska. Supported by Colin Teramura and a number of dedicated volunteers, these carvers have worked every day for five weeks with hardly any time off.

And now it’s already the eve of the steaming of the dugout canoe! This is a significant step in the creation of the dugout, and it’s happening on Aboriginal Day on the waterfront for all to come and see. Here’s a look back at how far they’ve come.
