Historic Paddle Photo: Matt Bernard - Pikwàkanagàn FN Bark Canoe and Paddle

Illustrated Forest and Outdoors (January 1947) from the Canadian Forestry Association featured a 1 page article showcasing the bark canoe building of Matt Bernard of Golden Lake, Ontario  (now known as Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation).



The canoe and image look similar to the photo in the virtualmuseum.ca online exhibit Canoe Builders of Pikwàkanagàn where a better photo of the paddle profile is shown.
