Root Digging Near Wilbur

Copyright © 2006 Barry G. Moses.

My children and I joined extended family members to dig white camas and bitterroot on historic digging grounds near Wilbur. We follow this practice every year after centuries of tradition handed down from our elders. It feels amazing to participate in something so ancient and alive. This practice connects us to the past, but also provides a link to the living spirit of our faith.
