Canoe Carry (Book Two, Card 24)

The Iroquois designed large thirty-foot-long freight-carrying canoes that could transport 18 people or tones of cargo. Even when empty, those canoes could be paddled by three people. The original canoes were made of sturdy light wood frames with birch bark skins. The bark was sometimes applied in a single piece and pleated to take up slack as it was shaped.
