Hobiyee 2014 is the celebration of the Nisga’a New Year, full of song and traditional dance.
Over time the spiritual leaders observed that whenever the first crescent moon is in the shape of a “Hoobix”-the bowl of a Nisga’a wooden spoon, thin shaped and the ends pointing upward-that in following seasons the resources of the lands would be plentiful, the oolichan, salmon, berries and various other resources, bountiful. Hobiyee is about the point in time when the Cedar Bent Boxes of the Nisga’a are near empty of their winter provisions and they have begun to ration the last of their provisions. The Nisga’a are praying for a bountiful season of oolichans and a fruitful year.
Lil’wat Elders, Drummers, Singers and Dancers have again been invited to participate in the Nisga’a Ts’amiks Edition of the Hobiyee Celebration.
The December 1 Fundraiser will help defray the costs of attendance.
