Art of Northwest Native American Indian Canoes and Boats

Because of the proximity of the Northwest Native American Indian people to the Pacific coast, many tribes in this region have a deep connection with the sea. In fact, some Northwest Native American Indian tribes are seasoned whalers.

As a result, the Northwest Native American Indian people became expert canoe and boat makers. Of course, like many of their objects, the canoes and boats made in the Pacific Northwest are decorated with beautiful art that is specific to the region.

The Museum of Civilization near Ottawa in Canada has a few large authentic canoes made by Northwest Native Indian boatmakers. As one can see in the photos below, they are intricately decorated with complex art.

Northwest Native American Indian Canoes

The canoe directly above was built from a single red cedar log by Haida canoe makers Alfred and Robert Davidson in 1908. It is 16.5 metres or just over 54 feet long and could carry 5 tons of cargo. It requires 10 paddlers plus a steersman. It is also equipped with 3 masts and sails which most people do not expect on a Native American Indian boat.

Renowned Haida artist Charles Edenshaw painted this canoe which features sea wolves (part wolf, part killer whale) on the bow.

Northwest Native American Indian artists are producing some stunning artwork these days. See Northwest Native American Indian art carvings at very affordable online prices here at Free Spirit Gallery.
