SALISH TIME

This piece is of four salmon heads around a circular pinwheel. The movement that is there is like a slow moving wave around the salmon that connects it all.

Time according to Salish People meant many things. Our whole way of life was depicted by the seasons, the moons and the work that accompanied that time of year. The tides, pulled by the moon, signified our travel. When we should use our canoes, when we should heed the weather and stay at home.

Time was very relevant to the availability of food, from salmon, clams, ducks, deer, camus, seaweed. To the tasks that we accomplished; gathering, harvesting, drying, preparing, storing, making.

“Salish Time” depicts salmon around a circle like the circle of time in a year.
