A great film from 1949 showing for the first time and possibly the last time ever, that a Traditional, Hand-Made, Louisianan Pirogue was crafted from an 800lb. cedar log. FolkStreams » The Pirogue Maker
A great early film by Frank Stevens - the narration... and YouTube are modern but the Currach and construction are totally classic. I've always been a fan of Timothy Severin's "The Brendan Voyage" - and this little film feels right at home.
