Klii animsap (Acorn ripening)

Howka brothers and sisters... now that it is Fall, Kupiihaaw (ripening ) time (October = halanyimcep).. it's time to gather our acorns. As I roamed the top of our mountain I found a great gathering spot I would like to share. As you make your way to the top of our reservation and start to reach that spot that brings you down the mountain a bit look to the right and you will see an old cement water trough. It is a spot that the cows cannot get to. If you step up to it and look inside you will see hundreds of acorns ready to made into shawee (acorn mush).
