This scene was captured by Edward S. Curtis, probably along the Pend Oreille River in eastern Washington, part of the original Kalispel territory and location of the current Kalispel reservation. Detail views 1 and 2 give us a closer look at traditional Kalispel canoes. Built on a framework of cedar, they are sheathed by a single piece of bark turned inside out - usually from large Western White Pine. The cedar was lashed together with chokecherry bark, the nose was birch bark, and the seams were sealed with pine pitch. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
