Here are some of my Algonquin Style Birchbark canoes. Algonquin birchbark canoes have distinctive features which include overlapped planking, slightly flared sides, straight stem pieces, and quick uprise of the ends. Algonquin style canoes have beautiful sheer and are often decorated with winter bark etching. The designs represent mostly animals which have a great importance in the Algonquin culture.
