Native American Canoe Model

Canoes are shallow-draft boats whose delicate shape has much in common with Viking ships. Birchbark canoes are most commonly associated with Native Americans of northern New England regions. Most canoes were built small and were light, as small as they were they were fast, fast enought to carry a few people rapidly over our rivers and lakes. Early European written records indicate that birchbark canoes were built in all sizes, made small for a single person or fashioned in an incredible size to carry an amazing 50 paddlers. These canoes ranged in length between 10 and 24 feet.  You  can find these Native American Canoe Model replicas at The Old Gift Shop.
