Last Friday, our Salish class convened in a grove of tamarack trees to gather black moss.
The day began with a light drizzle, but by the end of the afternoon, the blue sky appeared.
We took turns pulling the moss with a long hook.
After collecting the moss from the trees, we all stood together and cleaned the moss from the fallen branches.
The goal of our class was to continue the tradition of our ancestors, but we also enjoyed a few light-hearted moments of joking and laughter.
