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.

These are not hobby canoes they are 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.

They are 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 true art form to learn. If sewn to tight when wet the
canoe will warp, if sewn to 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.
(THESE CANOES COME WITH A CERTIFICATE OF AUTHINTISITY)
