hunting catch, what you caught

Sxélcha means ‘catch’, as in ‘what you caught when hunting’.

You can use sxélcha to to talk about the body of an animal, a bird, or a fish.


Sxélcha sounds like s-HILL-chah, except that:

  • Instead of an h you make the Halq’eméylem x-sound.
  • To make the x, create light friction by touching your tongue to the roof of your mouth.
