Native American Indians making a Canoe


CANOES WERE MADE WITH FIRE! CANOES WERE MADE FROM TREES USING FIRE TO SHAPE THEM. IF YOU LOOK CAREFULLY AT THE DRAWING YOU WILL SEE THAT TREES WERE FIRST BURNED DOWN, AT THE UPPER RIGHT SIDE OF THE DRAWING, THEN SHAPED BY NATIVE AMERICANS USING MORE FIRE IN JUST THE RIGHT PLACES.
