Historic Paddle Photo - Maliseets at Kingsclear FN

Found a historic photo of some Maliseet paddlers from Kingsclear First Nation. Apparently this photo was taking in 1887 in celebration of Corpus Christi Day. Beautiful bark canoes, traditional dress and even a priest are in view.

Original Photo

Some enlarged shots of the standing paddlers in regalia show some beautiful, long paddles with a traditional Maliseet grip style.
