Tracing of a petroglyph of two human figures in a canoe possibly lancing fish


Petroglyph tracings D: Canoes #10. 7 negatives and 8 positives. Marion Robertson's Rock Drawings of the Micmac Indians interpret this petroglyph as "Two men in canoe lancing fish… These are perhaps Passamaquoddy Indians as the canoe is not the Micmac "humpback", and the drawing is similar to the Eastern Algonkin tribal designation for the Passamaquoddy Indians of two Indians paddling a canoe and following a fish."

Date: 1888
