Trade Canoe

Reclaimed old-growth red cedar
Grey whale, Raven, Frog

Haida canoes were the only vessels capable of crossing the treacherous Hecate Strait, allowing trade with mainland coastal tribes. The grey whale represents the open ocean, Raven symbolizes the unknown, and Frog wealth and abundance.
