Yurok hand-carved redwood dugout canoe

Master artist Glenn Moore, Sr. taught his grandson, Glenn Moore, Jr. to make a Yurok hand-carved redwood dugout canoe as part of ACTA's Apprenticeship Program in 2006. Used in Yurok and Hoopa ceremonies, master and apprentice carved the canoe from an old-growth redwood tree. Glenn Moore Sr. learned to carve canoes as a teenager from his older brother, Haines Moore. Glenn Moore II helped his grandfather when he carved his last boat several years ago and this time had the opportunity to learn all of the techniques and skills used to carve a canoe.
