Meet and hear from the authors, Joe Martin Tla-o-qui-aht canoe-maker and former museum curator Alan Hoover about their collaboration on the book Making A Chaputs: The Teachings and Responsibilities of a Canoe Maker. The book describes the making of a dugout canoe illustrated with graphics and photographs. A short filmed called ƛaʔuukʷiatḥ Dugout Canoe (Tla-o-qui-aht Dugout Canoe) will also be screened. In the film Joe Martin reconciles his past as a clearcut logger in what is now known as Clayoquot Sound by revitalizing the ancestral knowledge and artistic practice of the traditional Tla-o-qui-aht dugout canoe.
