Welcome to the Salish-Pend d'Oreille Culture Committee website.
Lesson of the month
April is the month when spring begins. We hear the first thunder which brings out the bears, snakes, gophers, and other hibernating animals. We quit telling coyote stories and put them away until the next snowfall. This is also the month when the sčiyál̓mn (buttercup) and q̓aw̓x̣é (yellow bells) are in bloom. Sčiyál̓mn is poisonous, but some Salish and Pend d'Oreille people knew how to use it as medicine. Q̓aw̓x̣é bulbs are food, sometimes mixed with bitterroot.
