SOLD - Antique "OJIBWE"" Snowshoes
Circa 1960's & in very good condition. White Ash with thick leather rawhide lacing. "Natural" webbing, suitable for deep snow, wide open spaces. Pointed tips, upturned toe. Pointed tips cut through snow & mainly used for rolling terrain and brush. Tail acts to provide forward "kick" motion, lessening fatigue. A great pair for ski chalet wall decoration.
The name Ojibwe comes from one of the largest of the Native peoples of Canada that settled along the Great Lakes in Ontario, in western Canada and north-central United States. This highly aesthetic snowshoe is one of the oldest of traditional wooden snowshoes. Curiously, it resembles those used by the ancient peoples of Siberia, Greenland and Scandinavia many centuries ago.
