This documentary features Grant Goltz and Christy Hohman-Caine of Hackensack working alongside Jim Jones, a Leech Lake Band member of Cass Lake, to create a replica of a canoe documented from the 1860s. The canoe is a wedding gift for Winnipeg archeologists, Kevin Brownlee and Myra Sitchon. As scientists, the group’s passion for authenticity and sensitivity toward the cultural context of the canoe is explored in this program. Follow them from the beginning, with birchbark freshly harvested from timber sale trees, to the completed craft.
