    GingerAway W. (74) Native American tribes called the August Full Moon the “Grain Moon" because this is when the grains have ripened and harvested or "Sturgeon Moon” because they knew the sturgeon of the Great Lakes and Lake Champlain were most readily caught.  Other tribal name preferences for August are: “Full Green Corn Moon”,  “Wheat Cut Moon” (San Ildefonso, and San Juan), or “Moon When All Things Ripen” (Dakotah Sioux) or “Blueberry Moon” (Ojibway).

    Native American Algonquin tribes, living in what is now the northern and eastern United States, called the July Full Moon the the Full Thunder Moon, thunderstorms being now most frequent.  It was also often called the Full Buck Moon as new antlers of buck deer push out from their foreheads in coatings of velvety fur.   Sometimes it is also called the Full Hay Moon.

    Strawberry Full Moon Friday June 13, 2014-Click Picture For Full ArticleStrawberry Moon – This name was universal to every Algonquin tribe.  The short season for harvesting strawberries comes each year during June.  Native Americans also referred to this as Moon of the Corn, the first cultivated crop. Corn fields were the heart of early villages. This grain is symbolic of intelligence and versatility.  The dried kernels can also be turned into jewelry and used in blessing rituals. Picking by moonlight is said to honor the crops and a sacred time for women to send up prayers for everyone and cleanse their spiritual selves.  June 20 7:02 A.M.

    If you ever want to see what that Flag means,
    go to a funeral of a Veteran when that flag is
    presented to the relatives.  That is when the Flag
    becomes the most important thing in their lives,
    because that is all they have left.[1].jpg

    Depending on the Native American tribe, May’s Full Moon was called the Full Flower Moon as well as Mother’s Moon, Milk Moon, and Corn Planting Moon. The May Moon marked a time of increasing fertility with temperatures warm enough for safely bearing young, a near end to late frosts, and plants in bloom.
    Full Moon: May 21

    Some Native Americans referred to the full moon in April as the Full Pink Moon, after a type of wildflower
    that blooms early in the year, helping to signify that spring has arrived.
    April’s full moon goes by a number of other names in different cultures such as Sprouting Grass moon and
    egg moon.  Some coastal tribes referred to it as the fish moon because it coincided with the shad swimming
