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 ?
