Western Cree canoe
A few things I noticed in this build were the stitching panels on the sides of the canoe. The builder had placed the side panels on top of the main hull sheet, with the seam effectively pointing down into the water. Most water-worthy boats I've seen have the main hull sheet overlap on top of the side panel, with the seam pointing up and away from the water surface. Don't know if this was simply a decision made by the builder or if authentic canoes from this region were built this way.

In addition, this canoe has the continuous lashing and round gunwales reminiscient of East Coast Mi'kmaq canoes, in the style documented by Todd Labrador's build. This would certainly take a lot more root than I had gathered for my boat.

It's an interesting style of canoe and is now on display in the museum's gallery, complete with a stuffed black bear for "ambience".
