Meet and hear from Shawn Brigman, Ph.D., the owner of Salishan Sturgeon Nose Canoes. If you've been to the Downtown Library in the last six months you may have noticed a canoe hanging between the 2nd and 3rd floors. This handmade canoe was built with funding from a Spokane Arts grant award (SAGA). Dr. Brigman handbuilds his canoes in the style of the Native Americans original to the Spokane area. He will talk about the process for building his canoe, show his materials and answer questions.
