Megan Samms is an L’nu weaver, natural dyer and farmer on the West Coast of Ktaqmkuk at the Katalisk Sipu, or, in Codroy Valley. The Valley is her traditional territory and is where she makes the good life with her husband and partner, Ash Hall. There, they cultivate their gardens for both their own subsistence and for market. They raise chickens and ducks, honeybees, occasionally turkeys, vegetables, fruit, medicines and dye plants. They also organize quarterly Makers & Gardeners Markets and an organic, bulk food buying group.
