  • Master canoe carver shapes students’ lives

    By Mike Lewis
    Seattle, Washington (AP)

    Maybe canoe building is the inevitable conclusion for a man floating along epic streams of consciousness, for a man who steers with the current rather than against it, for a man who cares about quality of passage rather than speed of arrival.

    Maybe, but it’s a little hard to say.

    Conversations with Saaduuts, the self-taught Haida carver and artist-in-residence at Seattle’s Center for Wooden Boats, don’t follow a linear, ask-to-answer path. Replies turn and loop back, stop and drift away. Answers do arrive – sometimes before a question is launched, sometimes after a question is forgotten.
