Today I was gifted a First Nations scraping tool, found by our Workaway host Martin a few years ago while he was doing some landscaping work in Squamish, BC. He had an expert check it out and was told it would most likely have been used for scraping salmon, and was shaped using stone, in other words, before 'The White Man' was in Canada. OLD!
'Oh my gawd, that's just a frickin' rock, Nikki' I hear some of you say, which it is, but it's a special rock and I get such a dorky kick out of knowing a bit about it's history and where it came from. And to think that a Native Indian from many moons ago made this, held this, and used this! That's the 12 year old wanna-be archeologist in me!
