Historic Paddle Photo: Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) paddle from Kingsclear

A 2007 exhibit entitled Wolastoqiyik - Portrait of A People  (sponsored by the Government of New Brunswick) has some great canoe related online images.  The online portal has a downloadable exhibit guide (*.pdf format) which features some better high resolution grayscale photos.

One such image is of Margarette Francis of Kingsclear. She is posing with traditional garb, a snowshoe in one hand and a lengthy paddle in the other.
