Cesar's Bark Canoe -- national film board of Canada
"This documentary shows how a canoe is built the old way. CÚsar Newashish, a 67-year-old Attikamek of the Manawan Reserve north of Montreal, uses only birchbark, cedar splints, spruce roots and gum. Building a canoe solely from the materials that the forest provides may become a lost art, even among the Native peoples whose traditional craft it is. The film is without commentary but text frames appear on the screen in Cree, French and English. "
I believe it dates from 1971
I'll warn you, it's an hour long. I jumped around and watched chunks of it. Fascinating to see what he does with so little.
