Hunting & Fishing has been part of our lives for thousands of years. It is that intrinsic connection to the land, understanding the changes of the seasons and of course the patience and respect to listen, learn and be one with Nature. Today we continue that practice, but more importantly we never forget the responsibility of this tradition: Give back to the Earth by making an offering and only taking what we will use. In early New England many of our relatives went aboard fishing and whaling ships to make a living. Some tribal communities today continue the practice of fishing to sustain their livelihood.
