  Renee DuFresne & Sipke DeBoer



Renee and Sipke have over 30 years of paddling experience, most of which have been spent using and teaching traditional paddling skills. Enthusiastic about sharing and preserving Inuit culture, they work persistently to bring the delights of traditional skills to everyone they meet. Recently returned from the Greenland National Qajaqing Championship in Aasiaat, Greenland, they've acquired a deeper respect for, and love of, all things and all peoples Greenland.



Presentations

 Tools and Tricks of the Arctic Seal Hunters

(scheduling yet to be determined) 

Your kayak has a history, rich in arctic culture and the tradition of the seal hunt. Stop by and learn about the Inuit hunters' craft and tools. Learn how Greenlanders, and other communities worldwide are helping to preserve this culture through education, reclamation and games! On site will be a museum replica Skin on Frame Qajaq, completely outfitted for seal hunting, bird catching and walrus pulling. Renee and her interactive map will help you understand the possible origins of the kayak that you paddle today, and Sipke knows a thing or two about harpoons. This is a hands on presentation; you can peruse the tools, learn how they were used, and learn about the tricks they used for recovery of large sea mammals and game.
