Artist's Name: Jennifer Tse
Paddle Title: Gojijing
Meaning of Paddle Design: The design is the artist's interpretation of the surface of Lake Couchiching at sunset. 'Gojijing' is the Ojibwe origin of the lake's name, which means 'inlet'. The subject choice reflects Jennifer's gratitude for our Province's fresh waterways and watersheds that provide a home to countless aquatic, mammalian and bird species. Both mainland and island territory on this lake belong to the Chippewas of Rama First Nation, a member of the Anishinabek Nation of Ojibwe peoples.
Jennifer has provided a signed Certificate of Authenticity.
