We occasionally get a small number of very
nicely made birchbark canoes from the Attikamek in Manouane, Quebec. Manouane is a Native community about 150 miles
northeast of Montreal at the end of a long logging road.
The canoes are
made in the traditional style using birch bark and spruce roots. The
men usually make the canoes and the women etch designs on the outside.
These canoes are becoming more difficult to obtain
with each passing year.
The canoes are not signed, but most likely
are made by members of the Dube family.
The 12' to 14' full size canoes are available for
around US$10,000 each. The designs are similar, just much
Our Gxx codes denote individual pieces. If you would like to order a specific canoe, please go to our Gallery to pick the exact one shown.
