The nursery is located at 2380 Hatchery Road in Duncan, and is open Monday to Friday, 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.
My traditionally inspired salve has been used on eczema, psoriasis, arthritis aches and pains. It relieves general dry skin and itchiness, rashes and works great as first aid. It is easily applied and quickly absorbed, leaving your skine feeling sift and smooth. I also make deer or elk hide drums starting at 10" and progressing up to 20". All drums are sold with a plain surface. I can recommend an artist to design your drum.
Yellow and red cedar bark baskets and hats, earrings and pouches all hand woven. We also have carvings. All of these items are made from cedar that has been harvested in our traditional territory. We have many items that are hand painted with dyes on silk, including scarves and hankies, bandanas and shawls, and paintings that depict life on the reservation and the nature that surrounds us. Classes for weaving and silk painting are available upon request; a minimum of six persons is preferred. Please call or e-mail me for more details of prices, times and dates available.
The Southern Gulf Islands has some of the best sailing and kayaking and wildlife viewing available in the world. Wildlife encounters include Orcas, Minke and Gray whales, Porpoise, Otters, Seals, Sea lions, and a vast array of local and migrating marine bird life. We will explore new areas and each night will find us in a new anchorage. One of the greatest advantages of Kayaking from a mother ship is being able to reach secluded spots away from the reach of other kayakers.
