Model kayak. Thin pieces of bent wood tied together with sinew make a rigid interior frame that is covered with a single piece of stretched hide, sewn together along the top of the kayak. Two harpoons (?) with wood handles attached by sinew to bone heads are held to the model in front of the cockpit, strapped in place by two thin, horizontal deck lines of hide. A carved piece of bone is positioned directly in front of the cockpit. Two holes have been bored through its base, which hold the deck lines in place.


Collected by Alan Deacon between 1936 and 1940 at Coppermine.
