Miscellaneous Crafty

I call it a 'girl's first burl'. This spalted fir root came from the rotten core of the very last log Dave and I pulled out of the Soo Valley last December. When I feel like procrastinating I'll give it a scrape inside and out. Mastercrafters make bowls and jewelery boxes from this stuff. I haven't a clue what it will become yet.

Hi there,

Our boats' name is "Soo Valley". Odd name for a boat. What can you tell me about your Soo Valley?

I believe the Soo Valley is named after the Lil’wat Nation's pronunciation of the original name for it, 'Su7a'. It is their hereditary territory to this day.

Thank you. Would 'Su7a' be pronounced "Soo Valley" or has it been 'englishized"....ie. how would "Su7a" be pronounced by a Lil'wat member? Thanks

I haven't a clue, but you may post or email that question at the Turtle Island Native Network:
