Lake Champlain First Navigators- Birch Bark Canoe

 NOT RECOMMENDED FOR DIAL UP

 In Summer 2007, Aaron York, a member of the Abenaki Nation, completed an 18-foot birch bark canoe as an artist in residence at the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum in Vergennes, VT. York fashioned the canoe body from a single sheet of birch bark, using a cedar frame and spruce root stitching. Members of the El-nu Abenaki Tribe and Woodland Confederacy held a ceremonial launching of the canoe in early August of 2007. The canoe is a replica of the type used by Samuel de Champlain in his exploration of the Lake in 1609. The canoe project received research support from Professor Frederick M. Wiseman of Johnson State College and the Wôbanakik Heritage Center.
