Ojibwe Paddle and Bark Canoe

Here's an example of an Ojibwe bark canoe and roughly carved paddle found online at the Ojibwe People's Dictionary Project. Unfortunately no extra details about the canoe or the paddle...

This birch bark canoe and paddle was made at the Waswagoning Ojibwe Village In Lac du Flambeau Wis. The paddle was carved with a crooked knife and axe out of white birch.
I ran a workshop there in 2006 with 6 students. It took 16 days to build this canoe from scratch. I have sever photos of the project if your interested. Ferdy Goode
