Champlain's illustration of Native dress
Another illustration I found adds some colour to the original sketch. It is a zoomed versin of Champlain's Carte Geographique de la Nouvelle France (1612). It essential recreates the characters and reproduces the paddle decoration with red and yellow stripes.

This chevron pattern seems to be a common motif as I've seen it in a couple other historic texts. More posts on that to come.
