Temqwá:l

Mosquito Time

The tenth month, around July, is called Temqwa:l - mosquito time.  Every year Sto:lo families would travel to Yale and camp for several weeks between Yale and Spuzzum to wind dry fish at this time.  Some families still do this.  This month is also the time when mosquitoes appear;  it is said they appear when the thimbleberries appear.
Here you will find lesson plans and resources in relation to this month.
