Salmon have been bringing people together since time immemorial. Indigenous and Tribal elders and knowledge keepers share their insights on respectful intercultural gathering and cross-Nation ways to sustain peaceful relationships. Kettle Falls and Celilo Falls, both now flooded over by Columbia River dams, were two of the greatest salmon harvesting sites in the world, drawing together Indigenous peoples from across the Northwest for thousands of years. It is vital to bring the salmon home for Indigenous ceremony, sustenance, social relations and trade, and to benefit all people and ecosystems in the Columbia River watersheds.
