The Traditional Watercraft Project celebrates traditional watercraft as a form of revitalizing cultural and traditional knowledge systems of Indigenous Peoples, while promoting reconciliation and cultural awareness. This project will take place in a tent on the grounds of the SS Klondike and will involve the construction of four types of watercraft including a birch bark canoe, dugout canoe, seal skin kayak, and moose skin boat.

Public participation is encouraged as there will be demonstrations, presentations, workshops and more scheduled throughout the entire month! Following construction, the boats will be launched and celebrated at the Adäka Cultural Festival in July!
