In 1948, Robert Flaherty was working on his last film, "Louisiana Story". He was searching for a small boat, or "pirogue" for his young hero. Flaherty soon became aware that pirogue-making was a disappearing art. Finally, when he found Ebdon Allemon, a Cajun craftsman, he persuaded him to make the pirogue. It may very well have been the last pirogue made in Louisiana. This is a record of that event.
