Description
"Canoe Paddle. This paddle, carved from wood that water doesn't soften, is an authentic reproduction of paddles used by the Puget Sound Indians. It was carved by a full-blood Quileute who lived near Hoquim, Washington. I [Cleora C. Helbing] don't have his name because some full-blood Indians, even though they like you, do not like to give their names."
