Description:
David Gene gave an introduction to Buster Gene Old Rock story by the post office. What should be done with the rock? Don't know, maybe mark it. Chief Ewan's name should be on it and his brother. Sign. Paint it on the other side. Tses'kae means big rock. Gakona. Like a monument to Chief Ewan. Quite a bit of graves and caches' and old houses down there by the old village. Paxson John and his wife grave up on the hill. He was a sleep doctor. He wanted to be buried where no one was around. He gave an order. The cache there might have been there since 1924. Talk a little about old time war. Adam Sanford's Dad could be his grave there. No markers on some of the graves. Long time ago after you sick and ready to die then you tell someone to throw something on the grave, you have to do it. Lotta old people used to live in the village. What clans they are and what other clans from Batzulneta. Stories from Buster Gene and some village identification. First of June people starting fishing. No fish wheel back then. There is an old cabin on the island, do you know about that? No. Never found the cabin after hunting bear down that way. Lots of old pots and one square hole there too. Skookum John was Buster Gene's uncle, his Dad's brother. Spring time was muskrat hunting by the lakes. . Language as given: aht
