If I were to ask you what is 6,000 years old and still going strong, my guess is most would have no idea what that would be. Ironically, one style is named the Ojibwa with a total of six styles commonly accepted across North America and Canada. You will likely say, “I knew that,” when you’re told it’s the common snowshoe.
