Event Details


Celebrate the creative energy that wild salmon have inspired through the ages! For thousands of years, wild salmon have been our most important indigenous food as well as a cultural and ecological keystone species in BC. They are an indicator of the health and integrity of the indigenous land and food system on which the entire agri-food system is based, directly feeding the entire Pacific Temperate Rainforest and its many species including bears, wolves, eagles, and our own families and communities.

Ancient ceremonies and songs of Indigenous peoples, as well as creative expressions of visual and performing arts, music, storytelling, and guest speakers will call the wild salmon home to the rivers and streams and honour their important role. After this opening celebration, the Wild Salmon Caravan will continue following the route of the Sockeye salmon (with creative stops along the way!) to finish with a sacred ceremony at the Adams River on Sep 29.
