Water Stories Episode 2: Akwiten
When an ancient Maliseet canoe emerges out of a European collection no one knew that the art of canoe building was emerging as well. Kim and Wayne Brooks have become central figures in the rebirth of the birch bark canoe with some help from unlikely friends. So when the news arrived that the Museum of Civilization would bring back the canoe for restoration it was a moment of joy filled with emotion and inspiration. We see the making of the canoe and watch her glide upon the gentle waters of the Wolostok, the beautiful river.
