Camas & the Garry Oak Ecosystem

Garry oak ecosystems, once a prominent feature of the pre-contact landscape of Coast Salish territories, were carefully tended gardens and farms growing spe:nxw (camas) as well as other edible and medicinal plants. Camas blooms in the month of tum̓pé:nxw (May) which in hul̓q̓umín̓um̓  means time for camas, alternately called punxwémuntime of camas blooming.
