Moon of the Blackberry – 13moons

by ,

Moon of the Blackberry

Many berries are now ripe, including blackberries. Berries are picked and eaten fresh or dried for winter use. Around this time, and sometimes earlier, the sap in cedar trees stops running, signaling the time to harvest cedar bark. Cedar bark has many uses, such as providing materials for shelter, clothing, tools, and transportation. Some examples of cedar items are bentwood boxes, ropes, and hats. Also during this time, sockeye salmon fishing reaches its peak. Every second year during this moon, humpback salmon—also called humpies or pink salmon—start running at the end of this moon and into the next two moons. Humpies are captured in pounds and weirs with scoop nets. Humpies are then smoked hard. Shellfish harvesting and curing continues.
