Historic Paddle Photo: Maliseets at Kingsclear

Here is another scene from a beautiful historic photo posted earlier on the blog. It comes courtesy of Gerry Biron's very educational site on Iroquois and Wabanaki beadwork.

Figure 16 – A circa 1880 image printed on a circa 1913 post card titled: “Indians on the Reservation near Fredericton, N. B.” 3.5 inches wide by 5.5 inches high. The original photo was taken during a St. Anne’s Day celebration at Kingsclear, New Brunswick. Likely a group of Maliseet. Photographer: William Taylor of Fredericton.

A zoomed in shot further showcases the beautiful lines and grip shapes of these carved paddles.
