The exhibit was not just about the Florida discovery, but included a wide variety
of sources, like this display of various paddle styles.
This dugout is from the First Nations tribes of the U.S. and Canadian Northwest.
Considering the resurgence of dugout canoe building and efforts to revitalize tribal culture, you may wish to seek out the video "Canoe Way: The Sacred Journey." At http://www.canoeway.com/ you can see a trailer for the 2011 award-winning film, but unfortunately it has gone out of production, and is no longer available commercially. It featured interviews with tribal elders, and explored the return to building dugouts and using them for youth expedition programs. If you find a copy on the internet, grab it.
