Joe Martin is dedicated to the art and tradition of carving the ocean-going dugout canoes that connect the villages of the northwest coast of Vancouver Island. He is well-known in the Nuu-chah-nulth area for the beauty and quality of his canoes and for his art and skill in the building of traditional canoes. Trained by his father at an early age, Joe has over his career produced 62 canoes. As an ambassador for Clayoquot Sound and the traditions of the Nuu-chah-nulth, he promotes cultural practice and cross-cultural education. And, true to tradition, he passes on his knowledge and skill to the next generation.
