Anishinaabe Birchbark Canoe
Mary Rice donated this canoe to BHA, which was constructed eighteen years ago by Marvin Defoe. Following the traditional ways of his ancestors, he used birch bark (wiigwass) from trees he studied for many years. All materials and methods used were identical to those of his ancestors.
