  Baidarka vs Qajaq

Ancient word search game - and their meanings

Qajaq is simply Inuit spelling for ‘kayak’.
Of course the Inuit had no written language,
and this spelling was invented by missionaries.

Aleutian Baidarka simply means ‘small boat’ in Russian

Some claim indigenous paddle craft are ‘canoes’
Carib Indian ‘kanu’ derivative

Language and marketing in 2013+ will be interesting indeed

Maybe Canoe Poling is considered a 2 sided thrust
and deserves kayak status in the future ?
