Each region created their own canoe designs based on tradition and available materials. This view shows a Nez Perce version, carved out of a single cedar log. When they reached Nez Perce territory, members of the Lewis and Clark Expedition were taught by the locals how to carve this type of canoe. They made five canoes in twelve days. Leaving their horses and gear with the Nez Perce until their return, they continued on to the Pacific Ocean. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
