The rabaska was a big Algonquian bark canoe. The Amerindians used the rabaska to move, go hunting and to trade.

Adopted by the French and Canadian explorers in the XVIIth century then by the travelers, he allowed colony settlement to be formed everywhere in North America. The rabaska measures approximately 6 meters long and is very wide. He can sit up to 10 rowers. The rabaska has quickly became the boat of the fur traders because of its load capacity.
