Description: Canoe is a film that will inspire viewers through the stories told by legends of North America’s paddling community, portraying the many important ways the canoe has and continues to shape our culture and heritage. The Voyageurs are the iconic paddlers tied to the rich Canadian history and culture of the canoe— These men helped shape the canoe and Canada itself with their exploration of the terrain and wilderness by paddle. Note the bold weight of the “N“ suggesting magnetic North and the front-view of a canoe acting as the needle on a compass. This ties in the “Icon of the North” portion of the film title
