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 larger.
