THESE ARE DECORATIVE HANDCRAFTED BIRCH BARK CANOE AND SHOULD BE USED FOR DISPLAY
PURPOSES ONLY, IT IS NOT WATER READY!


BINESHII BIRCH BARK CANOES ARE ON DISPLAY AT THE SMITHSONIAN MUSEUM IN WASHINGTON D.C.
(Minnesota
. Tribal I.D. #408B23246.)

Bineshii birch bark canoes are expertly handcrafted by Ojibwe elders on the Leech Indian Reservation
located in Northern Minnesota in the Village of Cass Lake.

This canoe is a smaller version of our more expensive model.
It is the same length but a smaller depth and width.

They are created to scale of a full size Ojibwe canoe. This scale gives it a great visual sense of proportion
to the full size canoes used for hundreds of years by the Ojibwe Indians.

OUR BIRCH BARK CANOES CAN ONLY BE CREATED DURING THE BIRCH BARK CUTTING SEASON.

(USUALLY STARTING DURING THE FIRST WEEK IN JUNE UNTIL SEPTEMBER FIRST)

THIS LIMITS US TO THE QUANTITY WE CAN CREATE EACH YEAR FOR OUR CUSTOMERS.

WE USUALLY STOP TAKING ORDER DURING THE LAST WEEK IN AUGUST. (OR WHEN OUR PRODUCTION QUOTA HAS BEEN MET)

It is approximately 48 inches long, 10 wide at the center,10.5 inches high at each end, and 6 inches deep.
This is not a hobby canoe it is crafted in the traditional Ojibwe manner as has been the custom for
generations. This unique craftsmanship takes many years to learn. The creation of these canoes involves
many steps and takes several weeks to create.

It is made of thick and heavy birch bark, trimmed with willow sticks, and hand peeled basswood sinew.
The peeled basswood is taken from the inside of the basswood tree. It is sewn when wet and as it dries
it tightens binding the birch bark. This process is a real art form to learn. If sewn too tight when wet the
canoe will warp, if sewn too loose the canoe will not take its shape.

The elders peel the bark of the birch tree to the perfect depth so the bark comes back within three
years. This process does not harm the beautiful birch tree.

This birch bark canoe will make any rustic decor stand out and catch every eye.

THESE CANOES LOOK GREAT HANGING FROM A CEILING OR ON A SHELF OR MANTEL!

IF YOU WOULD LIKE A LARGER QUANTITY OF THIS CANOE PLEASE CONTACT US.
