César Newashish, Native American Nation, Attikamek Manouane Reserve, Quebec, built this canoe. Early in the spring while the sap is running, he goes into the woods and chooses his birch. He sews the peeled bark with stripped spruce roots. Cedar wood comprises the end of the boat, ties, membrane and lathing. Last comes installation of the gunwales, sealing the boat and decoration.
His canoe is a work of art. At every stage, you will wonder anew.

Thank you Dave for sending me this jewel.
