The Life and Works of David Moses Bridges
with Donald Soctomah & Jean Flahive

“I’ve known the canoe since it was still on the tree.”

David Moses Bridges, who sought to revive and reinvent traditional Passamaquoddy arts, was the tribe’s most celebrated birch bark canoe maker. As a means to help preserve David’s legacy, Jean Flahive and Donald Soctomah co-authored The Canoe Maker, and will share their magical tale of David and his young son practicing the ancient art and spirituality of building a traditional canoe.
