  • Description
  • In 1909, Jack Adams, a member of the Suquamish Tribe, built a canoe for an Indian canoe race at Seattle's Alaska-Yukon-Pacific Exposition. Adams built the vessel from a single 48-foot log. On September 6, the canoes raced to the finish line at the foot of the fair's Pay Streak, in Portage Bay. In this photo, Adams and ten other men paddle the canoe on Portage Bay.
