Native Boat Global

Sharing the Art of Traditional Boats:


Before recorded history, before any remembered folklore, our ancient ancestors were finding ways to float. Wood, reeds, and other buoyant cellulose material was lashed, fastened, sealed, and covered, and water travel began.

No matter where you live, waterway’s most likely had a major factor for finding and settling your city, town, or village. Our water front communities everywhere still have strong presence or remnants of there traditional water craft.

Each Traditional boat tells a a unique story about the culture or the people where they reside. Please share your story with us, and let us bridge our cultures with the beauty of our indigenous boats. Thank you for sharing.
