Model of a kayak with prominent upturned ends that are distinctive of Inuvialuit kayaks. The frame is made from wood, and the cover is made from several pieces of hide stretched over the frame and stitched together. A seam running lengthwise on the deck has been stained with red ochre. Deck lashings made from braided sinew for holding hunting implements are attached fore and aft of the cockpit and a lance holder made from antler or bone is attached to the deck near the front end. The model includes a throwing board, the shaft of a lance with a wrapping of baleen at the tip end (the tip is missing), a double-bladed paddle, and a paddle with a single blade. Both paddles have been decorated using red ochre.
