Moon of the Salal Berry – 13moons

by ,

Moon of the Salal Berry

Many plants are ready to harvest during this moon. Salal berries are picked, mashed, dried and made into cakes. Currants and trailing blackberries are also ripe. Meanwhile, camas leaves shrivel up, making it an ideal time for harvesting the bulbs.

Chinook runs are reaching their peak, with the summer run continuing and the fall run starting farther up the river. Fall Chinook run through the next two moons. Salmon are caught using weirs, dip nets and spears. Seals, which fish for salmon, are hunted near fishing sites. Fresh salmon is eaten, and a large amount is dried for winter use. The moon of the salal berry signals a good time to wind-dry fish before an abundance of insects arrive.
