Overview

The History of British Columbia has been shaped by many forces-natural, cultural, political, social, and economic. And at the intersection of all those forces is an ancient and seemingly simple watercraft. Canoe Crossings tells the story of British Columbia's people, places, traditions, and achievements through the incredible influence of the canoe. The story chronicles the canoe's suspected origins in North America and its impact on the people who used it to explore, hunt, trade, fight, race, create, and even heal. Always at the crossroads of canoe culture, BC today is home to innovative artists and designers, as well as community leaders who see the canoe's potential to bring people together. Canoe Crossings will appeal to anyone who has ever sought adventure, found solace, or seen beauty in a canoe.
