Cultural anthropologist Ed Labenski has started blogging. Northern Waterways combines Ed’s passions for northern Canadian anthropology, aboriginal rights, resource development, and canoeing. Ed describes his blog this way:
This blog is a resource for people interested in northern culture and history … This blog brings together several of my interests: film, anthropology, canoeing, social and political issues in the North, sustainable development, and the technology of travel and video documentary work.
The blog is one component of a larger website devoted primarily to canoeing and river stewardship in the Yukon and Northwest Territories. The site has extensive listings of canoeing-related films (including downloads and in-site viewing) and several pages of links to everything from canoeing magazines to wilderness organizations to canoe route information.
