Dugout Canoe Found in Baja California
Tuesday, July 30, 2013
(INAH)MEXICO CITY, MEXICO—The bow of a canoe has been found in the Manuela Lagoon in Baja California. “We don’t know if the canoe was made by Bajacalifornian natives or if it arrived north by the currents, because the coast where we discovered the canoe is prone to the arrival of many different objects. Also, in the islands we have found very big trunks of different kinds of wood which originate from the north of the continent, they are not native to Mexico,” said Laura Romero Padilla of Mexico’s Institute of Anthropology and History.
