Nīpin, or summer, actually translates to "gifts from the water" (nipi = water; in = to give) because this is the season in which water is providing life in the rivers and through the raspberry and blueberry rains. The moons for this season are paskahawī pīsim (egg hatching moon) and paskowī pīsim (moulting moon). The Asiniskaw Īthiniwak would fish, gather berries and medicine, and make pottery. Nīpin also marks the new year for the Asiniskaw Īthiniwak - this is when you count how many winters old you are.
