Huron canoe / Huron-Wendat nation

Curious about Wooden Canoes
Here is an interesting story from the Saturday, July 23, Globe and Mail re: Huron-Wendat nation, Mr. Bastien, who died in 2003, operated a moccasin manufacturing business on the Huron-Wendat reserve near Quebec City, where he lived his entire life. No doubt Mr. Bastien would have been related to other Bastien members and others that were and still are to this day responsible for manufacturing the wood canvas covered Huron canoes, one of which I have and recently tripped with. I know this is off topic, but I thought it would be interesting to those of you that have an interest in the same. Cheers, Scott
