Tākwākin, or fall, actually translates to "gathering" or "adding up" (takwa = gathering; kin = it is happening) because this is the season in which birds and people gather to prepare for the coming winter; the birds prepare to leave and the people prepare to stay in one place. The moons for this season are hopahamowī pīsim (flying moon), pimahamowī pīsim (flying back moon), and nanimitahamowī pīsim (getting ready moon). The Asiniskaw Īthiniwak would hunt moose and bear, prepare pounded and smoked meat, and trap fish.
