The Etolin Canoe is an unfinished dugout canoe on Etolin Island, in the Tongass National Forest, that is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. It is made of a single Western red cedar or an Alaska yellow cedar trunk and was started, it is believed, somewhere between 1880 and 1920.

The canoe was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1][2]
