  • Birchbark canoes

    Illustration of Native people in a birchbark canoe.

    Birchbark canoes were light, strong and easy to handle. Some were big enough to carry more than ten people and hundreds of kilos of material.

    They were made on a thin wooden frame covered with pieces of bark, sewn together with thread made of spruce roots. To make them watertight, they were coated with pine gum.
