Jeremiah Saiz, whose ancestors are from the Basque Country, is a native New Mexican who has spent many years in Hawaii and is now living in San Francisco. In a blend of his interests and his heritage, Jeremiah had his new canoe painted in Basque colors. He also christened his canoe Aidegatxo, which in Lapurdi is a spirt that forms and controls storms. Jeremiah and Aidegatxo can be found whenever he can get away from school in the San Francisco Bay. Awesome picture, Jeremiah! The full size version can be found in this gallery.
