Manna for the Winter

IMG_7897-001   Nicolas Denys in 1672 described the Mi’kmaqs (Micmacs) catching and cooking oysters in the winter.  They are a great manna for the winter when the weather does not permit going on the hunt. … To obtain them the ice is broken and two long poles tied together about half-way up; then this is opened and closed like pincers.  The Oysters are drawn from the water and thrown upon the ice.
