A beautiful and important story about the passing of historical and cultural knowledge from a grandfather to his grandsons.

Gunai artist Steaphan Paton, along with his brothers and cousins, are shown how to make a traditional bark canoe by their Pop, Albert Mullett, Senior Gunai/Kurnai Elder.

This evocative journey told by Steaphan is also captured in stunning images by photographer Cam Cope.
