Speaker:      Harvey Golden
 
Description: Harvey Golden will talk about early raft / canoe construction and use in various cultures around the world He personally recreates many of the early sea going canoes that can be seen at his museum located at 5340 S.E. Lincoln St

The Lincoln Street Kayak and Canoe Museum (LSKCM) is dedicated to presenting a diverse variety of indigenous small watercraft forms in a contextual and educational setting. Each form represented reflects centuries or millennia of development influenced by cultural tradition, environment, external pressures, resources, function, practicality, and aesthetics. Despite their broad variation in shape, construction and use, each vessel is a proven design that served the designer/builder/user's needs, aiding them successfully in hunting, fishing, migrating, trading, and for general navigation. Perhaps no single object created by genus Homo better represents our ancestors' ingenuity, survival instinct, and desire for exploration than the canoe. Today, the canoe remains a powerful symbol and metaphor for individualism and adventure and is among the few objects aiding human transportation that is still created by hand in a non-mass-production context.
