Canoe

A canoe of Tlicho design made from birch bark, with bow and stern deck plates to keep waves from splashing inside. It was built by Tlicho Chief Jimmy Bruneau. Consisting of several sections of bark stitched together, these canoes are lashed with spruce root and sealed with spruce gum. In 1996, this canoe was used as a model for a project to document and construct a traditional birch bark canoe.
