Environment education puppet shows
For the past 20 years, The Paddling Puppeteers have been touring Canada with their nature and history based musical puppet shows. In the early years, the show was packed into a “Wiigwaas-Jiimaan” Ojibway style birch bark canoe and we traveled from show to show along the waterways of Ontario..
