Gitche Gumee, meaning “Big Water”, is what the Native American Nations called Lake Superior. The deep blue depths of that monstrous lake are echoed in this design.
Countless haunting, epic, glorious and terrible tales have been spun of the Gitche Gumee over the years. Gordon Lightfoot even wrote a song about the tragedy of The Sinking of the Edmond Fitzgerald
This design is painted on our Voyageur Heritage Paddle. With an elegantly traditional blade shape these are graceful in and out of the water. They’re perfect for lazy turns around the lake or for gracing the wall of your cabin. Each is a laminated combination of western red cedar, aspen and black walnut.
