Keeping Traditions Alive

My granddaughter Trinity was taught by her friend Weston, how to pound smoked and dried KOHO salmon.

This special technique helps to soften the salmon that has been smoked slowly for 8 days.

Trinity is part Tsimshian from northern BC and Weston is a member of the Qualicum Fist Nations, and has learned many dying traditions from his grandmother.

This was also a practice that I had never been taught until earlier the same day the children were doing it.

Very thankful to still be learning these ancient practices.
