Very honoured to be working with this traditional Tla-o-qui-aht paddle design shared with me by mentor, teacher and good friend Joe Martin. Light and strong. Good for pulling, quiet movement in the water and hunting. Made with Yew wood, yellow cedar handle plug for strength, finished with beeswax and mineral oil. Many, many thank yous Joe Martin for your teachings, your time and for the honouring of your ancestors. Kleco-Kleco.
