Sikwan, or break-up, actually translates to "rattling in" or "rattling feathers" (sisi = rattling; kwan = feathers) because this is the season in which the ice begins to candle, the snow settles, the streams start running, and the geese fly in - all of these sound like rattling. The moons for this season are mikiswi pīsim (eagle moon), and niski pīsim (goose moon). The Asiniskaw Īthiniwak would hunt geese and ducks.
