Nastawgans Being Made Available
The 'Nastawgan' , meaning the routes and ways of the elders of the past, is also the name of the Quarterly Journal that has been produced by the Wilderness Canoe Association (WCA) since about 1974.
The 'Nastawgan' is a treasure trove of articles and reports about wilderness travel and informs members of WCA trips and issues in the paddling community. There are many submissions by both club members and other like-minded outdoor adventurers.
The WCA would like to share its wealth of canoeing & wilderness information with as many people as possible so is making it available here on CCR. It will gradually be made available as described below:
- Current year issues (2013) are only available on the WCA website for members of the WCA .
- Digitized issues (presently 2008-2011) are available on this site: myccr.com/nastawgan/digitized or alternatively, click on the Nastawgan section in the left column (Digitized -> year group -> year -> season) to find the issue you want
- Non-digitized issues (2007 & earlier) are presently available at http://news.ourontario.ca/nastawgan/search . As time & money permit, all these older issues will also gradually be digitized & made available on this site.
- Issues that are on this site can be included in searches, but those on the OurOntario site cannot (because they are images, not text).
The 'Nastawgan Index' - Search for Past Nastawgan Articles by Subject and Title
The WCA has compiled a list of past Nastawgan articles, by subject content & title, called the 'Nastawgan Index'. It is an aid for the journal years 1974 - 2007 that can be used to track down past Nastawgan articles for the purpose of trip planning, research, or general interest. If you are interested in searching for a specific subject area from a past issue of Nastawgan, select the category from the category list below & click on the link.
After locating an article, if it is 2007 or earlier, you will find it here.
