Contexte culturel : During the late summer and fall of 2002, Pien Penashue built a canoe at North West Point near Sheshatshiu. Melvin Penashue and Alistair Pone worked with him as apprentices. Having cut lengths of white spruce from which canoe planks and ribs would be fashioned, the spruce logs were split open and thin planking made using wooden wedges. These wedges were hammered into the logs using wooden mallets made from white or black spruce, or an axe. Pien's preference was to hammer the wedges using the mallets because axes broke up the ends of the wedges too quickly. Pien used the word utakan for wedge. It is hard to imagine that bone wedges were used for splitting open logs. More information is required on this point - Peter Armitage (diary notes re. canoe making 2002).In his chapter about building a birch bark canoe, Rick Nash includes a photo that shows clearly the use of a wedge to split wood for ribs and planking. The top end of the tree was opened up first with an axe, and then with wedges.
