Originally these snowshoe "planks" were made by the indians from Little Whale River in Quebec, Canada. The first ones made were from 1894 and were called "Papatshitakusham" snowshoes made from two flat spruce planks. They were mostly used in Spring for travelling over soft, slushy snow. The other regular netted snowshoes became clogged with slush, rendering the weight very fatiguing.
