How did the first nations make toboggans?

Before European contact Aboriginals in Canada built toboggans and other sleds using the same methods used by Early Europeans and Asians. They would lash sticks and even logs together and bend one end back so it would not dig into the snow. Willow or Birch were a good woods to use and the bends and logs could be held in place with lashing made of bark, leather and other materials. There were different styles depending on the area, terrain, and loads to be carried. With European contact came metal and square cut lumber. Of course there were many ways to square or cut lumber but when it came to toboggans it was often easier to just let the logs wear square. Europeans also brought with them a trade system that would result in the availability of slats and slats made of wood from other areas though birch was often preferred because it was light and easier to bend. Toboggans and other sleds then took on the forms and looks we are familiar with today.
