–from a kwakiutl prayer said when a jumping salmon is seen. translated from the kwkiutl
the lunar cycle known as the Moon When Salmon Return to Earth in the traditional calendar of the Saanich people comes in early autumn, when there is a chill in the air……….. from the book FULL MOON FEAST by Jessica Prentice
It seems to be a month we can celebrate fish!!!! From huge halibut to the small spiny sea urchin to colorful fabric fish hanging from a stick…….
I have been cranking out the fish to send to a friend…. some for her and some to sell…… we shall see……..I like the way they all look together. Then, I separated them into little groups to hang.
