Boys & Guns

A photo series of my two sons playing with toy guns while visiting family in Saskatchewan.

Dzaxwan

Dzaxwan (kwak’wala), or in english eulachon, are one of the foundations of Indigenous culture and traditions in Kwakwaka’wakw territory. Families return each spring to the village of Dzawadi to harvest Dzaxwan. My son and I were fortunate enough to be invited to my friend, Art’s, home to take photos of him preparing Dzaxwan for the smoke house.
