Video: Meet Canoe Skipper Doug Chilton

Tlingit artist Doug Chilton is the leader of the One People Canoe Society. His job as a canoe skipper is to motivate people to pull together. He has led canoe journeys throughout Southeast Alaska and Washington’s Puget Sound.

Chilton says his passion for canoes began in 2000. Fourteen years later, efforts of the One People Canoe Society have renewed interest in Tlingit, Haida and Tsimshian cultures.

Listen to how he got started here:

In the last few years, the simple act of donating carving materials to Southeast Alaska organizations has created a new community of carvers. Master carvers are working alongside students, apprentice carvers and interested community members who are creating various traditional pieces. Chilton has been working with communities to make paddles for canoe journeys, including the 2014 Journey to Celebration. The canoes are equipped with new paddles carved from the donated materials.
