Every summer I take a journey back home to sell fireworks out of my stand, The BombShelter. We are located in Thunder Valley on the Chehalis Indian Reservation. I started selling fireworks for my mom at the age of fifteen, she has had a fireworks stand for over twenty years. I have had my own stand with my husband, Matt since 2009. I love my time on the rez selling fireworks, it keeps me connected to my family and my tribe. This blog is a journal about fireworks and hopefully gives you a little insight into the relationship between North West American Indians and Fireworks.
