Beaver

"Sklau7"

My grandfather ran the longest trap line in British Columbia. In his day, pelts turned into money. So in his language, Shuswap, the words for beaver and money are one and the same, "Sklau7."

Northern beaver pelts used to fetch a handsome price in London. The British turned those beavers into fancy hats for gentlemen. Not much for the beaver in that.

Seems that some folks got rich off the beaver’s back. Some stayed poor. And on the brink of extinction, the beaver was honored as Canada’s national symbol.
