a-tak-sht • December Moon: You Thank



The last dog salmon are caught in October or early November and the bountiful harvest is celebrated with songs. The canoes are put away into their places on the beach. A carved eagle on a post is raised temporarily for this celebration. The ceremonies of singing and giving thanks run through to our New Year on December 21st.
