Ferdy Goode
Master Birch bark Canoe and Basket Maker

I am proud and honored to be part of a very small guild of master birch bark canoe builders and basket makers who keep alive the almost extinct traditional techniques of hand crafting these vessels. I have also gained a national reputation as a builder of exquisite Native style snowshoes. I continue to pattern my work accurately using Native American tribal methods and designs. I would like to give thanks to the many fine craftsmen and artists, past and present, for leading me on this enlightening path through the lakes and forests of this great land.
