This historic interpreter at the Grand Portage National Monument (the site where traders met to send furs, especially beaver, from all over the West back to Montreal) makes and paddles his own traditionally-made birchbark canoes (and has even canoed/portaged for 1000 miles in one). If you are in the neighborhood of Grand Portage, he gives and excellent presentation, and is very interesting to talk to (he seems very committed to the era, and even lives in the bush).
