Bear Moon

Updated: Jan 10, 2019

To the Heida Alaskan Indians January was the time of the bear moon. Named táan kungáay.

Native cultures named the full moon phases of the year after natural events or chores that needed to be done during that time. I think it is important to stay aware of this significance.

Modern life has homogenized our daily, monthly and even yearly lives. It is very disconnecting from our roots and heritage.

Go outside to get connected and observe what it took to live closer to the elements and nature.
