Product Description

2.0 X 2.0 inch Sterling Silver by Bill Helin. For the Pacific Northwest Natives, times were calculated by moons, and remarkable events were remembered with ease from generation to generation, based on the moons. Twelve moons were added to each calendar year and in the instance a thirteenth moon appeared for a given year, this moon was noted as Tsimshian Moon.
