May all Nisga'a throughout the country and the world take pride in your rich history and always be reminded that Nisga'a Ayuuk, language and culture are the foundation of our identity and indeed the three key ingredients that make us the resilient, vibrant, strong, sophisticated Nation that we are.

THE NISGA'A NEW YEAR!
We invite you, your family and friends, to join us in celebrating our FIRST EVER public Hobiyee event!
What Hobiyee means:
The Simgigat-Nisga'a Chieftains - in past centuries studied the celestial heavens. They were knowledgeable in the behaviours of the stars in proximity to the moon which forecasted the weather patterns. They studied the astrology not from text books but by years of observing the heavens.
The Halayt-Simgigat (Spiritual Leader- Chief) studied the "Buxw-laks" moon, The Moon of February. Over time, they 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 the following seasons the resources of our lands would be plentiful, the oolichan, salmon, berries and various other resources, bountiful.
Hobiyee is about the point in time when our "Gal-ha'ink" 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 hoping and praying for a bountiful season of oolichans (saviour fish) and a fruitful year.
So the Nisga'a say, "Hobiyee" meaning "the spoon is full".
In the spirit of "Sayt K'il'im Goot" - One Path, One Heart, One Nation!
We welcome you to the Nisga'a Ts'amiks Edition of the Hobiyee Celebration!
