Ska-Nah-Doht village

Rebekah and I visited a replica of what a traditional Iroquois village would have looked like years ago. The Iroquois were one of the tribes living in Canada before white settlement.

The village is surrounded by a big fence to keep intruders out.

Many people would live in these long houses.

Me in the entrance of one of the long houses – I’m a bit too tall for the doorway.

Here is the inside of a house.

I found a mortar and pestle and posed with it. Not the right size for making our village specialties like menaga and gogii. The Iroquois probably used it for grinding grain.

A bridge, which was a little bit bouncy when crossing over it.
