Woman spinning yarn at the Coast Salish village of Musqueam. Charles F. Newcombe, December 5, 1915. Direct duplicate negative. PN 83 – Royal BC Museum/BC Archives. Charles Newcombe took two, three of four photographs of C’elicia spinning mountain goat hair at Musqueam; only two have survived. C’elicia uses a spindle stick (a tapered rod) and a spindle whorl (the disc) to spin the hair into thick yarn. This yarn could then be used to weave a Salish blanket similar to the one she sits on.
