Marcelle Labelle  (@Birch Bark Canoes by Mahigan)

Marcel Labelle is proud of his Métis heritage. His mother is Iroquois and French and his father is Algonquin and French. Marcel grew up in Northern Ontario and spent most of his childhood on the trap line. This is where he learned how to live with and from the forest. Today he builds traditional Birch Bark Canoes and demonstrates his craft at many venues.
