Chinook Indian canoes were made from trees that drifted down the Columbia River. Some canoes were up to 50' in length and 4 to 5' in width.
The San Francisco Chronicle stated in June of 1884 that "the Chinook canoe was a model of naval architecture, as perfect in its kind as the best clipper ship ever launched from an American shipyard.
These reconstructed canoes grace the lawn of the historic Catholic church St Mary's of McGowen (Chinook) Washington at the mouth of the Columbia River.
