Pounding stone

A pounding stone is used to prepare soft meat that can be consumed by elders. It is soft, so they can eat it. To make pounded meat for an elder is a respectful and caring thing to do. Pounded meat is also used by hunters as a light food to carry with them. It can also be used to break up bones to make bone grease. This tool was used by Madelaine Pea’a (aka Madelaine Judas, senior) in Wekweeti in the 1960s.

Boat motor

A ‘Johnson’ eight horsepower ‘OK-20’ gasoline boat motor. This motor was being used by a Dene man on his home-made boat in 1962 when Bern Will Brown arrived in Colville Lake. Small boat motors like this are also called ‘kickers’ and could be strapped on the back of freighter canoes, making travel much easier for people using the waterways.
