St. Mary's Maliseet FN Paddles

Came across a snapshot article from Daily Gleaner outlining a visit of Canadian Architect Douglas Cardinal  to St. Mary's First Nation in New Brunswick. The story features some photos of the replica of the Grandfather Akwiten built by Steve Cayard and G. Wayne Brooks at the St.Mary's First Nation in 2009 (more info on Steve Cayard's site here).

Anyway, the newspaper article had a close up Brooks & Cardinal holding some traditional paddles...what looks to be both an older set with curved notches in the grip and a new set with some basic etching.
