Welcome to the Salish-Pend d'Oreille Culture Committee website.
Lesson of the month
St̓šá Spq̓niʔ - Huckelberry Month
The huckleberries ripen in the month of August and some as early as late July. The st̓ša grew in abundance years ago. If plentiful, the people would pick enough to last all winter and spring.
For holding berries, the Salish and Pend d'Oreille used cedar bark baskets that were made earlier in the year. The baskets were light weight and easy to carry. Berries never got crushed in these baskets.
