To the people of the land and the sea, the moons indicate the season and its mostly a season to harvest.

In my home village of Kitkatla B.C., the moon in November is the Clam Moon.

Images of rain, sleet, and snow, low tides, gas lamps, and gunny sacks fade in and out of memory. Shadowy figures dancing on the beach from the flickering flames of gas lamps. Finally the boats slip through the night on their return from distant beaches.

Once again we celebrate with a feast of hot clam chowder made with fresh clams during the time of the ‘Clam Moon’.
