Learning to build canoes by hand

Brent Lodge, 26, of Lynnwood, shows a group from Americorps proper canoe carving technique on the shores of Lake Union. Lodge was helping his uncle Saaduuts Peele teach the short workshop, for which groups come a couple times a week. Peele took two donated logs with defects in them to recycle them to a new use. "We are all connected," said Peele. "It's about honoring Mother Earth by using what we have."
