Creating planks

By Bill Schlichting, The Curry Coastal Pilot

Members of the Yurok Tribe demonstrated the Native American method of splitting redwood logs to make planks used for building shelters. Saturday's event was near the site of the Chetco Indian memorial at the Port of Brookings Harbor. The general public was invited to try its hand at the skill. This plank splitting workshop was made possible thanks to the Confederated Tribes of Siletz Indians, Curry County Cultural Coalition, Coquille Tribal Community Fund and Three Rivers Foundation.
