18TH CENTURY LIVING HISTORY, HISTORICAL TREKKING, AND LONG TERM SURVIVAL.
Salmon fishing on the river during the spawning run. The two sticks on either side of the net would come together when a fish hit the net trapping it. Pretty ingenious actually.
Now that's close to home. Hupa is one of the local tribes here. You can find more old photos here.http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/award98/ienhtml/curthome.html
P.S. Keith, the correct spelling is actually Hoopa. The Hoopa Reservation, which is the largest reservation in California, is about a 2 hour drive from here. Not that far by air miles, but it is on the other side of the Marble Mountain Wilderness Area from here.
Thank you Bob, good to hear from you again. Hope this finds you well.Regards, Keith.
