“This tender loving care is a necessary maintenance chore for these Native Iroquois women. It enhances the longevity of these delicate water craft. Their hulls of birch bark are thin and easily punctured. Heated resin is used to patch problem areas. Bark patches can be sewn, using Spruce roots, and resined over larger holes. These roots are also used to lash around gunnel, bow & stern. These canoes are extremely light weight, easily maneuverable, and capable of carrying heavy loads. I have one and it can be lifted with one hand and is a joy to paddle.”
