Historic Transportation

Lnu'k made canoes out of birch bark. These birch bark canoes were between 3 to 9 metres in length. They were made higher on the sides so that water wouldn't get in if they went on the ocean. Lnu'k also made boats out of moose skin. They would sew together 25 skins or so. A moose skin boat could carry several families and their supplies. Lnu'k also made snowshoes for the winter and used toboggans as well.
