Luna del Cervo: why is the full moon of July so called

Since Native Americans did not use a Gregorian calendar like ours, but they were based on a lunar calendar, to mark months, seasons and years they referred to full moon. Each full moon was assigned a popular name, related to traditional culture or to some natural event the whole community is particularly significant. Thus were “born” the full moons of the harvest, strawberries, the hunter, wolves, corn and so on. The month of July, as indicated, is dedicated to the deer, an animal that played a very important role in the survival of the tribes. In this month the mighty antlers that fall cyclically begin to grow back in the males, therefore the tribal leaders decided to pay homage to this event of “rebirth” to the deer. It should be borne in mind that there are several Native American communities, so each has given its name to the Full Moon. The most common and used are those of nativi americani algonchinisimply because it is the larger tribe, even today. The Deer Full Moon is also known as the Feather Moulting Moon (Cree), Salmon Moon (Tlingit), Berry Moon (Anishinaabe), Ripe Cherry Moon (Dakota), Ripe Corn Moon (Cherokee) and Raspberry Moon ( Ojibwe).
