Inscription.  Dugout log canoes were used (and still are used) by many primitive societies throughout much of the world. The first colonists to the Chesapeake found the local Indian using the dugouts for transportation and fishing. A suitable tree trunk was hollowed out using fire, the charred wood scraped away with oyster shell or stone tools. In 1980, the museum's Patuxent Small Craft Guild built this reproduction using a tulip poplar log.
