The Traditional Paddlers Gathering is the product of a shared obsession. We’re northern paddlers who have fallen for the subtlety and brilliance of Greenland-style paddling techniques and equipment. Most of us have splashed at the water for hour upon hour and year after year as we’ve attempted to master some portion of the repertoire of Greenland rolls. Others have carved traditional paddles, built Greenland-style boats, or made tuiliks (the combination paddling garment and sprayskirt). Some of us have made harpoons and, to the befuddlement of onlookers, practiced chucking them at imaginary seals.
