DESCRIPTION:

Clubs were used to kill salmon when hunting. The club is decorated with spots of fish skin showing respect for the fish that gave their life to feed humans. The first salmon season was especially treated with great respect, it was a tradition that all salmon bones would be thrown back to the water to ensure that salmon multiplied and returned again (King, 1999, p.152).
